Talksport has issued reports that their is discussion over a £15 million fee on the table from either Liverpool, Inter Milan or even Tottenham.
Lucas, as he is known, has already broken into the first team for the club and could be a hard player to pry free as he looks to be a integral part of the clubs plans for the future.
So far he has already totaled 44 games and scored 11 goals for the Brazilian club and is expected to do more during the season.
All three of the clubs mentioned have the possible cash for the bid if it is agreed for any of them. However, Inter Milan look the most poised for the move though.
Liverpool already spent large on their midfield this summer and Tottenham look to have the funds from their sales on the last day, but I do not believe the current position will help them sell the club to a prospect that will certainly have his eyes on European competition.
