TRANSFER NEWS: Lucas Set For Shock January Move

By on December 2, 2011

Premier League trio Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd have been told highly rated winger Lucas Ocampos is available for transfer this January, according to reports.

Ocampos is regarded as one of the most talented youngsters in Argentinian football and has been linked with English giants Chelsea, Liverpool and Man Utd in recent months. The 17-year-old had been nicknamed the ‘new Ronaldo’ and his club River Plate have until now refused to entertain offers for him insisting they wanted to seal promotion back to top flight football before letting Ocampos go.

However, it’s reported they have made a dramatic u-turn and River are now prepared to cash-in on their prized asset this January. If reports are to be believed, it will take offers in excess of £15m to land the teenage sensation, but the Premiership clubs will face stiff competition from Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

Liverpool have been touted as favourites to snap up the winger due to their connections in South America but it remains to be seen if they can secure Ocampos’ signature ahead of their rivals.

      There certainly seems to be some confusion. Please read the story clearly. It relates to Lucas Ocampos, an Argentinian teenager, potentially moving in the January transfer window. NOT current Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva.

      Thanks

        You’re joking right? Without Lucas’s defending and haggling in the back third, we probably not have taken points from Chelsea and Man City!
        I don’t understand how supporters don’t recognize the ongoing work that he does! All you see are goals… There are 11 players out there and each has a role! Lucas has been our stand out player over the last season and a half!
        Go back and learn what real football is!
        Who the hell would sell their best player of this period other than idiots like you?!?!

    If Lucas Levia fetches a high price, then sell him.
