Lucas is set to be rewarded for his fine form this season by being offered a new contract at Liverpool. We all know that Lucas has had a tough time ever since he arrived at Liverpool. Many fans have not been behind him but over the last couple of months he has rolled up his sleeves and he is starting to play well. I know there are still many fans out there who do not believe in Lucas and would want to see him leave the club.
Roy Hodgson was asked if there were any contract talks with Lucas on the horizon, Hodgson said: “I think there is, yes. A couple of weeks ago Damien (Comolli) mentioned to me about him wanting to get in touch with Lucas’s agent to discuss a new contract, but I can’t quite frankly remember where we are.
“Certainly if you ask me the question ‘Is Lucas welcome at the club and would we like to keep him?’ then the answer is a resounding ‘Yes’.”
