Inter Milan and Juventus are circling Liverpool for Lucas Leiva.
With Reds boss Roy Hodgson going with new arrivals Raul Meireles and Christian Poulsen in midfield, both Serie A clubs are convinced Lucas can be tempted away in January.
Inter coach Rafa Benitez would welcome a reunion with Lucas, having failed to beat Barcelona for Javier Mascherano in August.
In Juve's case, they see Lucas as a like-for-like replacement for Momo Sissoko, the former Liverpool midfielder, who is a target for Wolfsburg.
