Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva is unsure as to whether his future remains at Anfield, after revealing that he does not know if he will be in manager Jurgen Klopp's plans for next season.

Lucas endured a difficult campaign in Klopp's first season in charge of the Reds, finding himself in and out of the side with the German favouring Emre Can over the 29-year-old.

​Speaking to Radio Jovem Pam, the club's longest serving player revealed that he will wait to see how Klopp deals in the current transfer window. "It is the first transfer window that Klopp will participate more actively in for Liverpool, so I’ll have a better idea when I return" stated Liverpool's nine-year servant.


Confirmation of Sadio Mane's £34m switch from Southampton has been confirmed and a move for a defender has also been heavily rumoured.

Whilst neither of these transfers will directly impact upon Lucas' role within the side, Klopp will be looking to mould a side in the image of his 'geggenpressing' tactic, with this his first transfer window as Liverpool boss.

A high pressing defensive block, requiring fast and agile players to hound the opposition, Lucas has struggled to adapt to the demands the German places on his side.

Rumours from inside the club have suggested that Klopp and Lucas have struck up a close friendship, however Lucas entertained the prospect of leaving the club when speaking about his future. The 29-year-old stated that "the idea is always to remain in Europe, mainly in England, which has a very strong and good league to play in."
