‘Will be sorely missed’, ‘Wrong time to sell him’ … Liverpool fans react as star closes on exit


According to BBC Football, Liverpool have given midfielder Lucas Leiva permission to talk to Lazio over a £5m move to Serie A.

The Brazil international has been with the Merseyside outfit for a decade but after being left out of the squad for the club’s pre-season friendly against Wigan Athletic on Friday, he looks to be on his way out at Anfield.

Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on the news via social media, and while many were sad to see Lucas leave after a decade at Anfield, some even believe that it is the wrong time to sell the Brazilian.
