Well I guess those who have played the last two installments of Football Manager wouldn't be too unfamiliar with the name, Lucas. Yes, that Brazilian wonderkid at Gremio. According to some sources from Portugal, he has signed for Liverpool for £4.5m.
No official word yet but if that's true, it's probably a brilliant news. He's the youngest every player in the Brazilian league to win the player of the year award and is currently the captain of the Brazilian U-20 squad.
A bit of mix between Gerrard's grittiness and Alonso's gracefulness on the ball, he is one to look out for in the future. But could this mark the end of Alonso or Sissoko's career at Anfield? Stay tune to find out.

Fowler Not Given Contract Extension
Robbie Fowler's Liverpool career will come to an end this weekend against Charlton Athletic after the former England striker was informed that he will not be offered a new contract. Rafael Benítez met Fowler this week and confirmed that his one-year deal would not be renewed when it expires next month.All the best, Robbie 'God'. I guess nobody expected him to return to Liverpool after that fall out with Gerard Houllier but it all seemed like a fairy tale from my perspective. To come back and play for Liverpool once again must've been a dream come true from the man whose tear dropped the day he left Anfield.
Fowler has scored 183 goals in 368 games in two spells with the club, establishing him as the fifth most prolific forward in the Reds' history. The player will explore his options and Bolton, whose manager Sammy Lee coached Fowler at Anfield, could represent one potential destination. Jerzy Dudek will also bid goodbye to Liverpool against relegated Charlton, with the Polish goalkeeper out of contract next month.The Guardian
I shall leave the tribute to him to later on and let's hope he gets the winner at Athens! That'll probably be the best farewell gift, from God.
