Lucas: I want to stay at Liverpool.

  • Brazil international wants to remain with Jurgen Klopp's side.

  • A lack of playing time for Lucas has prompted links to a January move to Inter.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva says he would like to stay at Anfield, despite a lack of first-team football.

The Brazilian, who has been linked with a move to Serie A side Inter Milan, has started three Premier League matches for the Reds this season, playing as a centre-back on each occasion.

However, Lucas, who has made over 300 appearances at Anfield, is hoping he doesn't get forced out of the Merseyside club.

"The situation is not great," he said as Omnisport reported. "It is not something I want for my future - to not have many games - but at this moment I have to deal with this and try to find a solution when I have the chance.

"I have to be professional, think about the team and see what is going to happen. I don't want this for my career, especially at my age. I'm not close to retiring and have many years ahead of me.

"Of course there are always rumours but today the best place for me to be is Liverpool. I cannot say about tomorrow.

"The manager [Jurgen Klopp] has been very good to me and we have a very open relationship so it is nothing I am worried about.

"It has been a special season already and we have a chance to win trophies and that is something I consider as well."

Liverpool are currently priced at odds of around 4/1 to win the Premier League with most bookmakers, including William Hill. Visit this page for more details.
