Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva will not feature in the club's friendly at Wigan on Friday night after Lazio made a £5million bid to sign him.

The 30-year-old Brazilian is the club's longest-serving current player having just marked a decade on Merseyside - but he is now considering his options.

He will not feature in Jurgen Klopp's squad at the DW Stadium, having played 45 minutes in their first pre-season game at Tranmere on Wednesday.
