The Serie A giants are understood to be geared up for a busy January of transfer deals, and want to follow up a move for Arsenal’s Lukas Podolski with a swoop for the Reds’ Brazilian midfielder.
While Lucas has been back in Brendan Rodgers’ XI of late, it’s rumoured that a deal for him to leave Anfield this month could go through, and Inter are keen to offer Liverpool a replacement player to sweeten the deal.
Vidic is a name they’re keen to send to England, with the Serbian’s move from United having been a disaster.
The veteran centre-back is already on the transfer list, and has been linked with a free transfer back to Old Trafford.
A more realistic swap may be Fredy Guarin, with the Colombian a ‘like for like’ alternative.
Liverpool want a respectable fee for Lucas, but the Milan giants are keen to negotiate a bargain through a player swap.
