Reds midfielder 'invites' Brazilian to join Liverpool

Published Add your comment

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has suggested former Gremio teammate Bruno Coutinho comes to join him at Anfield.

Both Lucas and Coutinho left Brazil for Europe four years ago, albeit by joining clubs are of substantially differing standards.

While Lucas signed for Liverpool for £5 million, Coutinho joined Polish side Jagiellonia Białystok, and has since moved to Polonia Warsaw.

Lucas, though, has maintained a close relationship with his compatriot since joining Liverpool, and has been impressed with the impact the 25-year-old has made in the the Ekstraklasa.

"We are in constant contact," Lucas told Gwizdek24. "I am very pleased that in the Polish league [he has] earned a good reputation."

And Lucas maintains the ambition he and Coutinho can be club mates again one day - preferably with Liverpool.

"It was fun to play together," added the 24-year-old. "I invite him to Anfield. Bruno has skills that predispose him to play in England."
