Liverpool interest flatters Serie ‘A’ midfielder

Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka has revealed that he’s aware of interest from Liverpool – because he’s read about it on the internet.

The 26-year-old defensive midfielder has enjoyed a season to remember in Serie ‘A’, helping Davide Ballardini’s side avoid relegation with a 17th place finish.

It’s form that has alerted Liverpool, according to Sky Sports, and the Slovakian international admits it’s good news to be linked with the Reds.

However, he hasn’t contacted compatriot Martin Skrtel to get any additional information on a possible move to Anfield.

"It's good news. I have read it on the internet,” Kucka told Dennik Sport.

"I have not called my compatriot Martin Skrtel and have no plans to do so. I prefer to keep my feet on the ground. I am a Genoa player, so I have to think that I'll play in Genoa the next season.

"But I can imagine what it would mean to wear the Liverpool shirt."

Kucka moved to Italy back in the summer of 2011, signing for Genoa after two seasons with Sparta Prague.

And, he could be on the move once again after another two seasons if the reports linking Reds boss Brendan Rodgers with a move are true.

Liverpool have defensive midfielders in the shape of Lucas Leiva and Joe Allen, but Kucka would offer an extra option at the heart of the side alongside skipper Steven Gerrard.
