Lucas Leiva of Liverpool wont feature in lineup followed by his suspension

The Brazilian could leave the club this summer after he agrees personal terms with the Seria A club. Lucas is Liverpool’s longest serving player in the Squad having joining from July 2007 from Gremio in £5m deal.

Lucas made his debut for Brazil a year after and has earned 24 caps for the five time World Champions.

After Liverpool’s final match of the season, a 3-0 win over Middlesbrough, Lucas was presented with a commemorative trophy by Kenny Dalglish to mark his decade with the club.

“It’s been an incredible 10 years, we all know it’s been a little bit like a rollercoaster: a lot of ups and downs,” he said, after receiving the trophy.

“But I’m so proud to wear this shirt every day of my life.

“This club made me better as a person, as a player, I have two kids born in Liverpool.

“I don’t have one specific moment I’d say was a highlight, I think these 10 years have been a very good 10 years.”

Lucas made 31 appearances for the club last season, scoring one in the Premier League.
