The situation has moved quickly, as Sky Sport Italia reporter Gianluca Di Marzio has now reported that Lucas has reached an agreement with Lazio and so in turn will now secure a move to the Italian capital in the coming days.
He will now discuss personal terms with Lazio ahead of any potential move.
In contrast to this, Times' journalist Paul Joyce reports that Lazio have already submitted a bid for Lucas and that the midfielder may not be part of the Liverpool squad to play Wigan Athletic this evening.
Lucas had been deployed as a center-back in recent seasons, after starting his career as a box to box midfielder.
Mbappé, Lemar, Coutinho… Létang balance les ratés de Paris — PSG
Nasser Al-Khelaïfi et le Paris Saint-Germain étaient prêts à toutes les folies pour Kylian Mbappé après sa saison record. Antero Henrique serait prêt à toute éventualité.
Lucas is Liverpool's longest-serving player, having joined the club for £5m in July 2007 from Gremio.
During his time with the Reds, he has only managed to pick up one piece of silverware, when Liverpool won the 2011/12 League Cup.
But with the midfield-trio of Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Adam Lallana now regular starters for Klopp, Lucas often found himself deployed as a center-back last season.
The 30-year-old - a cult hero at Liverpool who enjoys a close relationship with manager Jurgen Klopp - came close to leaving the club in the last transfer window.
