Genoa star reveals he is flattered to be linked with Liverpool after reading transfer rumours online.
Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka says he has read transfer rumours linking him with a move to Liverpool on the internet, and could see himself in the famous red shirt.
“It’s good news,” Kucka told Slovakian site Dennik Sport.
“I have read it on the internet.
“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 has been one of the shining lights in a very mixed season for Genoa.
They finished 17th in Serie A for the second season in a row, but were six points clear of the relegation zone, and Kucka particularly stood out with wing back Luca Antonelli throughout the campaign.
A great box to box midfielder, 26 year-old Kucka was a great asset to Genoa not only thanks to his impressive work rate, tackling and interceptions.
He’s also great in the air, and surprisingly good in attacking situations too.
Kucka is a fine dribbler, and contributed three goals and three assists to the Genoa total in Serie A.
Perhaps Liverpool are looking to the Slovakia international as a successor to skipper Steven Gerrard, but a deal could be tricky given Kucka’s co-ownership between Genoa and Inter Milan.
