Steven Gerrard wants experienced players for his Rangers side next season, and one player that has been linked with the Gers is his former Liverpool team-mate, Lucas Leiva.
The 31-year-old midfielder is a target for the Gerrard revolution as reported by the Scottish Sun, and the chances of the Brazilian being tempted to Glasgow surely increased greatly after his current side – Lazio – managed to implode and lose 3-2 to Inter, and miss out on qualification for the Champions League group stages.
The report claimed that Lazio would be ‘reluctant to sell’ the player, but that was before their catastrophic loss to Inter, and they could be more than willing to move Leiva on now, if the price is right.
Leiva has been a regular for the Rome based side, making 50 appearances this season, and his signing would be a masterstroke by Gerrard.
He would add an experience and know-how that the Gers have lacked in recent years, and would be more than a match for Scott Brown in the Old Firm battles next season.
Leiva now has a decision to make, to stay with a Lazio side who will take a long time to recover from such a terrible result, or come to Scotland and spearhead the Gerrard revolution which could take British football by storm.
Gerrard and Gers director of football Mark Allen will be working flat-out to ensure that Leiva makes the right choice.
