ONE OF THE BEST
The Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva has established himself as one of the important member within the Liverpool team, while his South American counterpart Luis Suarez has also been one of the best players in the Premier league as well.
The Uruguay striker has been linked with several clubs in the last few months. Suarez is currently top of the Premier league goalscoring charts, as he has 21 goals to his name. As a result, he is one of the contenders to win the PFA player of the year award this season. This has only served to intensify the rumours that the French club PSG will make a bid for the player.
Lucas, though, is extremely confident that his teammate will not have his head turned by the offers from other clubs. One of the major advantages of going to a club like PSG will be the ability to play in the Champions League. Liverpool have not been in this competition for a few years, and they are unlikely to qualify for the next season tournament as well. At 25 years of age, the striker would want to test himself at the top level of European football. PSG can also offer him substantial increase in his wages as well.
"After the season Luis is having I’m sure there will be a lot of speculation, that is bound to happen. At the end of the day it will be his decision and the club’s decision. But what I know from Luis is that he’s happy, he’s comfortable and his confidence is high. His desire is to see Liverpool progress and that is why he signed last summer," said Lucas Leiva. The striker has scored 25 goals for Liverpool in all competitions. The club are currently seventh in the Premier league table with 42 points.
