Liverpool starlet target Lucas admits he's happy to be linked with some of Europe's top clubs.

Teams from Spain, France, Italy and England have all been credited with an interest in the player, with Kenny Dalglish's Reds thought to be leading the Barclays Premier League chase.

Earning rave reviews with both Sao Paulo and Brazil, the 19-year-old insists his focus remains on improving as a player and helping his club win titles before moving away from the Morumbi.

"I’m happy that big European clubs are interested in me, as it shows I’ve been doing my job well. But I’m still very young and I’ve got a lot to learn," he told

"Right now my mind is fully focused on Sao Paulo. I want to win titles here, write my page in the club’s history and only then, yes, will I think about a move abroad."

Liverpool have spent big on bringing young players to Anfield under 'King Kenny', with Jordan Henderson, Andy Carroll and Sebastian Coates three examples of the Merseysiders looking to build for the future.


The club also have a large South American contingent, with Luis Suarez and Maxi Rodriguez two other players from the continent within the Liverpool ranks.

Adding Lucas won't be easy though, with the Liverpool hierarchy almost certainly aware that a big offer will be needed to lure the player away from his current club, given his desire to stay.

TalkSPORT claimed last week that Liverpool would need to offer in the region of £20 million to sign the player.
