Sportmediaset claim Napoli have agreed terms with Liverpool for Lucas Leiva on loan with option to buy.
According to the Italian sources, a deal has been struck with the Reds to reunite Lucas with his old Coach Rafa Benitez.
Napoli would pay €2m to have the Brazilian midfielder on loan for one season, plus an option to buy for a further €10m in July 2015.
It’s reported the Partenopei definitively moved in for Lucas after Marouane Fellaini suffered an injury, making the Manchester United man a less appetising prospect.
He’ll replaced Blerim Dzemaili, as the Swiss international is widely expected to join Milan this summer for €3m.
