Lucas Leiva has arrived in Italy
Lucas arrived in Roma as he gets set to leave Liverpool after 10 years at Anfield.
The 30-year-old played no part in Friday's 1-1 pre-season draw with Wigan as he edged closer to joining Lazio and this evening he was greeted by hundreds of Lazio fans when he arrived at the airport.
Lucas, who made 247 Premier League appearances for the Reds and scored just once, just needs to agree personal terms and undergo a medical before completing his move.
