Liverpool have not put Lucas Leiva on the transfer list but will listen to offers for the midfielder, according to Sky sources.

The 28-year-old Brazil international did not feature in the Reds' squad for their 1-0 opening weekend win at Stoke City.

Lucas also made just 16 Premier League starts last season and Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has also brought in England midfielder James Milner following Steven Gerrard's departure to LA Galaxy.

Lucas has been an important first-team player under a succession of managers at Anfield, having signed for the club from Gremio in 2007, but has found his playing time limited under Brendan Rodgers.

He has made over 250 appearances for the club, scoring five goals, but has fallen behind the likes of Jordan Henderson and Philippe Coutinho in midfield.
