Liverpool look set to accept a £5m offer from Lazio for long-serving midfielder Lucas Leiva.

The 30-year-old Brazilian is the club's longest-serving player having just marked a decade on Merseyside - but he is now considering his options.

Lucas sat out last night's friendly as Wigan Athletic.

He made 19 starts in all competitions last season - sometimes filling in at centre-back - but has entered the final year of his contract and knows he is unlikely to get regular game-time.

He has made 346 appearances for the club.
