Gazzetta dello Sport report that Inter Milan have yet to find an agreement with Liverpool over any deal or fee, and so the Italian club hope they can instigate a move through the player.
The report also states Ausilio came to England with the intention of confirming the future of current on-loan Southampton forward Dani Osvaldo.
Inter are said to be keen on Lucas after figuring it unlikely they will be able to capture Atletico Madrid’s Mario Suarez this month.
Yesterday it was claimed by Alfredo Pedulla that Lucas had been sending messages to the Nerazzurri in an attempt to wrangle a move to the San Siro.
Though with Lucas’ importance being highlighted in recent weeks with an incredible stat revealing Liverpool have a points per game ratio almost three times better when the Brazilian features it would surely take a big sum to convince Brendan Rodgers it was time to part ways with Leiva.
