Palermo Make Lucas Leiva Bid

The Sicilians are interested in landing the Liverpool midfielder...
Palermo have made an offer to Premier League outfit Liverpool for the services of Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva, the club have admitted.

Palermo's sporting director Walter Sabatini has revealed that the Sicilians have made an offer for the 23-year-old.

“We have made an initial offer to the English club,” Sabatini told Tgs Sport. “However, I can deny claims that we have offered £5 million as reported by some media. We have offered much less than that…”

Lucas was signed by Liverpool from Gremio in 2007 but has yet to fully win over the Anfield faithful.
