Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has confirmed that a number of clubs have expressed an interest in midfielder Lucas Leiva.
Liverpool have turned down all offers for the 21-year-old, with Benitez claiming he has a big future at Anfield.
“We have received offers for Lucas,” Benitez told the club’s official website.
“Maybe 10 clubs in Spain and Italy want to take him.
“That is how good he is. I have faith in Lucas.
“He has a very good mentality and is a player of top quality.
“He will be a top player, that is certain.
“But he already is a top player, he was captain of Brazil Under 21s and has won two caps with the national team.”
