Liverpool transfer news and rumours: Lucas Leiva not short of offers from Turkey and the Serie A

Lucas Leiva is looking increasingly likely to leave Anfield in the summer, but where he’ll go is the big question.

Turkish football website Fotomac is claiming Besiktas and Serie A clubs are leading the way.

But his wages may be the sticking point, with the Brazilian wanting £4.2m a season.

After 10 seasons at Liverpool, Lucas is set to leave on a free transfer.

Besiktas are understood to be at the front of the queue, according to the Daily Express, who report the midfielder wants to command a wage of £4.2million.

That could be out of the Turkish giants price range, however, and a compromise would have to be found if the deal is to go through.

Lucas is seen by Besiktas as a potential replacement for Canada international Atiba Hutchinson.

Should a move to Turkey fail to materialise, Lucas is reportedly keen to favour a switch to Gremio in his homeland of Brazil.
