Inter look to Leiva and Diarra

If Inter sell Marcelo Brozovic to Juventus, they could go for Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva or Lassana Diarra of Marseille.

The Corriere dello Sport is among the Italian sources who claim Juve will go all-in for Croatia international Brozovic over the next 48 hours, presenting an offer close to the €25m asking price.

According to Gazzamercato, the Nerazzurri are already planning his potential replacement.

Joao Mario is on the verge of a transfer from Sporting CP for around €45m, spread out over a loan with mandatory option to buy, and should fly in for his medical on Monday.

Other reinforcement options include Brazilian Lucas Leiva, who is struggling for playing time at Liverpool and his contract is due to expire at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old has been at Liverpool since 2007, ever since he left Gremio to continue his career in Europe.

Diarra is already 31 years old and only joined Olympique Marseille a year ago as a free agent.

He managed one goal in 25 Ligue 1 appearances last term for the French side.
