The Italian giants have long been linked with a move for the Brazilian defensive player, who has not managed to establish himself as a regular for the Reds this season.
Although Mancini says it may be something of an ambitious move, the former Manchester City boss does feel Lucas could make a great addition to his squad at the San Siro.
Lucas is one of the senior players on the books at Anfield after a long career with the club, and Mancini says his experience could be of great use to a number of the young players currently in the Inter squad.
“Lucas is a great player but he is a Liverpool player and it will be hard to get him,”the Italian said. “It certainly would be useful to us as he could help our youngsters grow.”
