Liverpool blast Lucas transfer rumours

Liverpool will not be selling Brazilian midfielder Lucas despite speculation that he would help balance the books after Kenny Dalglish's heavy spending this summer.

The Reds do not normally comment on transfer speculation, and are making no official response concerning the rumours, but a source at the club told ESPNsoccernet: ''There is nothing to say about this. It is rubbish''.

Lucas was voted Player of the Year last season at Anfield, but with £49 million of new players brought in to bolster the midfield over the summer - Stewart Downing from Aston Villa, Sunderland's Jordan Henderson and Blackpool's Charlie Adam - competition in his department is fierce and the Brazilian's options might be more limited.

However, having only signed a new deal in March, Dalglish sees him as part of his future plans and still views him as starter ahead of the likes of Joe Cole, Alberto Aquilani, Christian Poulsen, Jonjo Shelvey and Jay Spearing.

Meanwhile, Mexico Under-17 striker Marco Bueno is set to arrive next month with a view to signing what may well be a five-year contract.

His current club Pachuca held a meeting with the player and his parents yesterday to agree arrangements, with the youngster reportedly due on Merseyside sometime between August 10 and 12 to begin training with the reserves.

''A pre-contract with the parents and Bueno was signed to be sent to Liverpool,'' vice-president Andres Fassi told El Universal. ''So we are accepting the 10-day trial and the conditions, if the English decide to keep him.''

Bueno, talking about the prospective move to England, told Record: ''I have to face it with great motivation and commitment to represent the country in the best way, and with faith that everything is achievable.''

Asked about having the chance of playing alongside some of Liverpool's stars he added: ''Yes, I really do want that. It's a life experience that I will never forget, I'm very excited about that and will give my best. Where the opportunity arises I will make the most.''
