After Inter’s coup d’état signing of Xherdan Shaqiri today, the club is reported to once again be close to finalizing a deal. The BBC’s Carlo Laudisa took to Twitter this evening, or morning depending on where you tune in from, to express that Inter were close to finalizing a deal for Liverpool player, Lucas Leiva.
Editor’s note: Similar to the Podolski deal, this potential signing seems to be one that Inter fans are not all agreed on. With the Nerazzurri already boasting the likes of Medel and M’Vila in the defensive midfielder position, many wonder whether this money could be better spent elsewhere. A new defender, new full backs etc comes to mind. Despite the fact that our Ausilio now seems unstoppable this January, do you want this signing? Discuss below! Let us know what you think!
