Daily Mail.

Liverpool’s Uruguayan defender has attracted the interest of several big name clubs in Italy with Juventus looking to replace their 34-year-old Brazilian, Lucio.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild, Lucio hinted that he was unsettled at The Old Lady saying, “I am unhappy at the moment because I don’t play much at Juventus.”

The Bundesliga and Wolfsburg are seen as Lucio’s next move, with the player admitting that, “VfL would definitely be an option for me.’

If Juventus finally replace the aging Lucio with Coates, Liverpool will be desperate to enter the race to sign de Vrij, who is currently being tracked by Chelsea.

De Vrij has thus far refused to sign a new contract at De Kuip, leaving technical director Martin Van Geel to consider the Dutchman’s departure.

The young defender’s contract is up in 2014 and will be hoping for a swift exit to fulfil his ambitions elsewhere.
