Paris Saint German forward Lucas Moura has distanced himself from rumours linking him with a move to premier league side Liverpool.
The 23-year-old was used mostly from the bench last season by former manager Laurent Blanc and that cost him a place in the Brazil squad that participated at the last Copa America won by Chile.
However, he has continued to be linked with a move away from France with a host of top clubs after his services – Liverpool was reported to be in front of the queue but the player has claimed he has no knowledge of any deal.
Moura told Globo Esporte: “I’m not aware of anything, I’m just knowing what’s coming out on the internet by the press. [Jurgen Klopp] had no contact with me, it’s just speculation – summed up in a news conference.
Lucas Moura then spoke about his chances with the Brazilian national team under new manager Leonardo “Tite” Bacchi.
“I want to do a good pre-season and wait for Tite’s next Brazil squad. I’m sure he’ll be watching us all playing in Europe.
“Of course I am hoping to return to the national team and establish myself there, but my first focus is to establish myself at PSG as a starter and then I’m sure the opportunity will appear.”
Moura joined PSG in January 2013 and 152 appearances in all competitions, 54 of which came as a substitute.
