Liverpool midfielder Lucas has called on the club's owners to give Kenny Dalglish the manager's job on a permanent basis.
Reds owners Fenway Sports Group have confirmed they have held initial talks with Dalglish about a long-term deal at Anfield.
Dalglish replaced Roy Hodgson on a caretaker basis in January and has helped the side get their season back on track after a disappointing spell under the previous boss.
Lucas, who recently signed a new contract at Anfield, believes Dalglish deserves the job for the work he has done so far during his second spell at the helm.
"We still have a lot to do and to improve," Lucas told the Daily Star Sunday.
"But the way Kenny is doing it, I think he deserves to get the job.
"We can all see he knows a lot about football and that everything he does is aimed at helping his staff and the players."
