Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers intends to keep hold of the tough tackling enforcer despite ongoing Inter Milan interest in the 28 year old.
Lucas has impressed when called upon this season, Liverpool winning five and drawing one of the last six fixtures he has started, offering a strong line of cover in front of the club’s defence.
This source suggests that Lucas feels undervalued by the Merseyside outfit and as such perhaps some reassurance as to his importance to Liverpool could prove effective.
With Steven Gerrard set to leave for the LA Galaxy in the summer Rodgers would no doubt be keen to keep hold of other experienced, and able, members of his Liverpool squad.
Liverpool signed the midfield terrier in 2007 from Gremio and he has made a total of 263 appearances for the club.
Lucas’s wholehearted no-nonsense displays have made him something of a fan favourite and the Brazilian is arguably the club’s only real out and out defensive midfielder of note.
