Liverpool have accepted a £5m bid from Lazio for midfielder Lucas Leiva.
Lucas Leiva must now agree personal terms and pass a medical before a deal can be completed.
Lucas is due to face Wigan tonight in his club’s second friendly of pre-season, but his participation in that match is currently in doubt as negotiations continue this afternoon.
Speaking last season, Lucas admitted his future may lie away from Anfield.
“There is no doubt about my commitment to Liverpool, I just need to wait until the end of the season, work hard and make a decision together with the club,” Lucas said last April.
“I have been here long enough and if the time comes for me to go somewhere else I think I will leave with the feeling that I did everything I could.
“I am getting to the stage of my career where I think I can help a lot, off the pitch of course, but on the pitch as well.”
