The Brazilian midfielder of Liverpool, Lucas Leiva has revealed that he has attracted the attention of Napoli as well as a few other European clubs but Leiva has not assured that his future remains with Liverpool and the possibility of the Brazilian player leaving Anfield could be a real possibility.
Lucas Leiva is not a consistent player in the team of Brendan Rodgers and if things don’t change in the remaining matches of the year, another club could swoop in and sign him.
“I am not talking to anyone right now because I have a contract. But, since I am not playing, I’ll have to look around because I want to play. Last summer there was also talk of Napoli, but nothing that was satisfying for all the parties. It is true: Benitez has always shown great confidence in me. Over the summer there was interest from Napoli, along with other clubs. Benitez has again asked to sign me. My objective for now is to play consistently. We’ll see in future.” Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva said.
Leiva only wants to play a consistently in a club despite in what league they are participating in and this is good news for Napoli as the Italian club is ready to turn the Brazilian midfielder into an influential and consistent player at Napoli, this is something that seems to be lacking for Lucas Leiva with Liverpool as he has to stay on the sidelines of the team for a large amount of matches.
The coach of Napoli, Rafael Benitez is in search for a player that can perform alongside Gokhan Inler and Jorginho. The Italian club is also rumored to be interested in signing Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini and the captain of Lyon Maxime Gonalons but Lucas Leiva could be an easier option to sign considering his current situation with Liverpool where he does not play a main role.
