There's been quite a bit floating about the possibility of our longest serving player, Lucas Leiva leaving this January. I just read that Klopp was rather coy about it in a recent press conference. Maybe reading the transcript was misleading, but it made it sound as if the return of Joe Gomez, and how Ragnar Klavan has adapted to the PL has seen the need for Lucas as defensive cover disappear. Latest link for him is Inter. I found it interesting because I looked to see if there was a thread started on this already and back in 2015 he was linked with Inter and Besiktas. I don't see any future for him here and wouldn't begrudge him a move if he wanted to at this point in his career. And I imagine he'd leave with more class than Skrtel did. Especially considering how volatile supporters have been to him at periods of his time here. The question would be if it's a permanent move or a loan move. I'm wary of loan moves with options to buy from a Italian clubs as recent history shows them trying to renegotiate on the cheap after a successful loan spell, cutting their offer severely from the originally agreed upon amount.
