Genoa midfielder Juraj Kucka has admitted he is flattered to be linked with Liverpool but will keep his feet on the ground.

The 26-year-old holding midfielder has enjoyed a good season with the Serie A club and speculation has linked him with a move to Anfield.

The Slovakia international welcomes the attention and the prospect of playing alongside international team-mate Martin Skrtel but intends to focus on his job at Genoa.

"It's good news," Kucka told Dennik Sport. "I have read it on the internet.

"I have not called my compatriot Martin Skrtel and have no plans to do so. I prefer to keep my feet on the ground.

"I am a Genoa player, so I have to think that I'll play in Genoa the next season.

"But I can imagine what it would mean to wear the Liverpool shirt."
