Agent admits Crystal Palace bid for Santos midfielder Lucas Lima

The agent of Santos midfielder Lucas Lima has confirmed an offer from Crystal Palace was received this summer.

The Croydon Advertiser says speaking to ESPN Brasil, Lima's agent Wagner Ribeiro has said that Palace did bid for the Brazilian playmaker, but that he is waiting for a better offer.

Ribeiro also revealed that Lima had been the subject of bids from China earlier in the year, but believed something better would come.

He said it was his dream to play for a big club, but it is understood that Santos have no intention of selling Lima, whose contract is understood to expire at the end of 2017.
