Playmaker pledges future at Anfield.
Liverpool midfielder Raul Meireles wants to stay at Liverpool despite rumours linking him with a move to Italy.
Reds manager Kenny Dalglish has brought in two playmakers this summer in Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam, leaving limited room for places.
Serie A giants Inter Milan and Juventus are keen on signing the 28-year-old but Meireles is planning his immediate future at Anfield.
The Portugal international is looking forward to the new season and has recovered from an ankle injury.
On the club’s pre-season tour of China when he asked was asked if he would still be a Liverpool player this coming season, he replied: “Of course.”
“I have a little problem with my ankle, but I’ve start training today. It’s a little problem.”
Meanwhile, the club’s record signing Andy Carroll is looking to hit the ground running this term after arriving with an injury following his £35million capture from Newcastle.
“It was disappointing since I signed being injured. Getting myself back fit,” said the England international.
“Now I’m getting myself fit I’m looking forward to the start of season, which should be successful.”
