Friends Of Liverpool

Amazingly, reports in the press today suggest that Lucas Lieva has been the subject of transfer inquiries.
Frankly, I am stunned that the lad is even being pursued by other clubs.
After a completely uninspiring start to his career at Liverpool, where he couldn’t make a tackle, couldn’t pass the ball to a team-mate and was roundly booed by the Anfield faithful every time he was near the ball, the lad is now coveted by some clubs in Europe.
True, he is starting to play some good football in the absence of departed Xabi Alonso and the injuries to Alberto Aquilani, but he is not and never will never be the type of quality midfielder that Liverpool needs.
However, he is one of Rafa Benitez’s untouchables, first name on the team-sheet for every game this season, used as a holding midfielder alongside Masherano in all our matches this season.
The question is, would you sell him to buy the likes of Van Der Vaart of Real Madrid, or hang onto him in the hope that he becomes a great player for the Reds?
I would like to see him stay and progress at Anfield but I would also like the Dutchman to come to Liverpool in January.
What do you think, should Rafa cash in and buy a quality player instead?
