Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has been urged to join Villarreal.
Lucas, 24, has been linked with a January move away from Anfield and has supposedly been told to move to Spain by El Submarino Amarillo striker Nilmar.
The Brazilian has reportedly been in contact with compatriot Nilmar and has suggested he may be interest in linking up with his international team-mate.
"Lucas was interested in the club," said Nilmar - as reported by talkSPORT. "He wanted to know how we play and how we live here. I told him to come here for good football.
"He would be a great player for our team. He plays very well, and he would fit in well with our style at Villarreal."
Lucas has struggled to perform consistently since joining Liverpool from Gremio in 2007 and has been the subject of plenty of criticism during his time at Anfield.
However, he has shown signs of fulfilling his potential this season and is now enjoying an extended run in the Liverpool side under the stewardship of Kenny Dalglish.
But, should Liverpool manage to thrash out a deal for Blackpool captain Charlie Adam during the transfer window, then Lucas may find himself forced back down the pecking order at Anfield.
Adam's protracted move to Anfield continues to rumble with some reports suggesting Liverpool are close to an agreement for the 25-year-old, whereas others claim the Reds are ready to give up their pursuit of the Scot.
