Liverpool have rejected a £5million bid for Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva from Palermo, however talks are continuing between the two clubs, LFC Globe are reporting:

Liverpool rejected a bid for the Brazilian last week, however the two clubs are still in discussions with the Reds demanding atleast £8million for the 23-year-old.

Roy Hodgson is believed to have no say in the deal as talks began with Palermo before he was appointed as manager and Christian Purslow is heading the talks.

Hodgson isn’t keen on losing the Brazilian, who started in 32 of 38 Premier League games last season, but is unable to influence discussions which are already in an advanced stage.

Purslow is set to hold out for at least £8million and it is likely that the Italians would match that price after letting go of midfielders Mark Bresciano and Fabio Simplicio.
