Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva is attracting interest from Turkish side Galatasaray, according to Sky sources.

The 29-year-old, capped 24 times by Brazil, is in the final year of his current contract and has been linked with a move away from Liverpool this summer in the national press. 

Lucas is yet to be offered a new contract to remain at Anfield and it is understood Galatasaray could make a move to sign him before the close of the summer transfer window.
