Transfer News: Agent Confirms Liverpool & Chelsea Interest In £15m Samba Star

By on November 28, 2011

Premier League duo Chelsea and Liverpool have both made enquiries over Brazilian starlet Lucas, according to the players agent.

Lucas has been a stand out performer for Sao Paulo this season and has been named as one of FIFA’s players to watch in 2012. His performances have alerted a host of top European clubs including Chelsea and Liverpool, who have both contacted the Brazilian club about the availability of the attacking midfielder.

Reports have suggested the pair are prepared to bid £15m to land him in January. However, the players agent has claimed that Sao Paulo have no intention in selling their prize asset just yet but may be persuaded if a huge offer comes in next summer:

“Chelsea, Inter Milan and Liverpool have demanded details from me and Sao Paulo knows the situation.” He said.

“At the moment they are not interested. Perhaps in the summer they may negotiate but only an enormous offer could change things as I want continuity for the player for a couple of years.”
