Liverpool set to swap midfielder for French international forward

AC Milan are willing to offer French international Jeremy Menez as part of a deal to land Liverpool battler Lucas Leiva according to the Metro.

Menez moved to the San Siro last summer after three years at PSG and made an instant impact at the Serie A side.

The cultured wide-man, who can also play in a central striking role, finished as the club’s top-scorer in 2014/15, scoring 16 goals in domestic league action alone.

Menez is currently out with a troublesome back injury and the summer arrivals of Luiz Adriano, Carlos Bacca and Mario Balotelli could hamper the 28-year-old’s progress under new manager Sinisa Mihajlovic.
