The Reds are keen to improve their options in the middle of the park for next season, with manager Brendan Rodgers set to lose long-serving captain Steven Gerrard to LA Galaxy, while other first-teamers such as Joe Allen have not done the business on a consistent enough basis.

Lucas is another who has not really done enough to command a regular starting spot at Anfield, and it now looks like the club could use him as bait in a deal for the highly-rated Kovacic, who has caught the eye in his career in Serie A so far.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Liverpool now hope they can do a deal that would see Lucas and Kovacic swap places, in a deal that could benefit both clubs.
