Mercato 365 have reported that the Reds are set for a major squad overhaul this summer, and that Jurgen Klopp is eyeing the Brazilian forward, who has shone in Ligue 1 this season.
While he doesn’t always command a guaranteed first-team spot at the Parc des Princes, Lucas has managed six goals and five assists in the French top flight this season, making a series of high-profile contributions as PSG have romped to the French title.
The source notes that the 23-year-old—who is under contract at Paris until June 2019—has particularly piqued the interest of Klopp, who was understood to have scouted the South American during PSG’s Champions league last 16 bout against Chelsea.

However, it remains to be seen whether moneybags Paris would be willing to cash in on Lucas, particularly considering that they have already offloaded Ezequiel Lavezzi—who moved to Hebei China Fortune FC in China—and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic coming to the end of his contract.
