Villarreal are interested in Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva.
The Brazil international’s future remains undecided, despite manager Roy Hodgson insisting he is delighted with the 23 year-old’s impact this season.
After inquiries from Malaga and Seville, Villarreal have now made tentative contact for Lucas.
But Hodgson would be a reluctant seller. (Tribalfootball)
Oddly enough if an offer had come in for the Brazilian last term most Liverpool supporters would have gladly taken the money but the 23 year old midfield battler has been one of the few bright spots of an otherwise poor season.
Lucas Leiva has had more than his share of detractors during his three and a half years at the club but over the past six months the former Gremio man has put in some sterling performances, especially in big games, and is now perhaps one of the more important players in Roy Hodgson’s squad.
Villarreal are flying high in La Liga sitting in third spot, five points clear of fourth placed Valencia, and perhaps the worry is that the Liverpool man may well be tempted by a move to the Yellow Submarines?
