According to the report, Reds midfielder and longest serving player Lucas Leiva would move to Stadio Olimpico on a free transfer, after not being offered a new contract by manager Jurgen Klopp. During the negotiations, the Merseyside giants have also enquired about the defensive duo of Stefan de Vrij and Wallace.
Lucas, who made just 12 starts last season is curiously on pre-season duty with the Reds. The midfielder played most of the last season as a ball playing center-back, and with Liverpool aiming to buy reinforcements at the back, his future seems to be away from Anfield.
Defenders Stefan de Vrij and Wallace, both impressed last season for Lazio in the Serie A. The Eagles finished fifth time out and the center-back duo of Wallace and de Vrij had a huge role to play in their eventual position in the table.
However, it is highly unlikely that Liverpool will buy both center-backs from the Italians, with the likes of Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan already on their books. De Vrij, who has been previously linked with English clubs, given his experience and consistency over the past two seasons in Italy, seems to be the more likely target for the 18-time League winners.
The Dutchman's current market value is around £25 million according to Transfermarkt. One thing is for sure, he will cost a lot less than his counterpart Virgil van Dijk.
