The daily sports paper states that the Istanbul Giants have struck a deal with both Liverpool and Lucas and will sign him on a permanent deal. NTV Spor report that Galatasaray have offered €3 million for the services of the 29-year-old.
However, The Liverpool Echo state that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has temporarily blocked the transfer of Lucas Leiva until defensive cover is found.
The German tactician is currently facing a defensive crisis with Mamadou Sakho, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all sidelined. Lucas is a central midfielder but he offers Klopp an additional defensive option and filled in at centre-back at times last season.
Lucas is currently out injured with a hamstring strain but should return to training over the next two weeks.
