Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has vowed to fight for his place after the arrival of fellow midfielders Christian Poulsen and Raul Meireles.
The 23-year-old, a regular under former manager Rafael Benitez, has seen competition increase and despite impressing new boss Roy Hodgson in pre-season it seems he will be third choice for his preferred central position.
"What is the situation? I don't know. I'm still playing," said the club's young player of the year last season, who has been linked with Barclays Premier League rivals Stoke.
"At the moment, I haven't had any offers. I don't know if the club wants to sell me. I just have to wait.
"I'm going away with the national team (on Thursday) and I can't say any more than that.
"We don't have any games so we will be training for a week in Barcelona.
"If the club want to sell me, what can I do? I just have to wait and see what will happen.
"I need to be playing and I want to be playing but I believe that I am doing well.
"The manager will choose who plays. I have a contract here and if I don't get anything good for me or for the club, then I will stay."
