Fabio Aurelio wants to stay at Liverpool and fight for a first team place.
Left-back is supposed to be one of the positions Kenny Dalglish will make a signing this Summer. Aurelio expects this, but is planning to fight for the position when the Reds return to Melwood for pre-season in July.
"Liverpool always try to keep their squad as strong as possible and it's always good to have competition," said the Brazilian.
"If it's for the good of the team I'll welcome whoever comes in.
"My worries are about myself and making sure I'm fit and available.
"I believe I have the right ability to fight for a place in the team.
"I expect to be available more next season than I was this season.
"If I am then I will have the chance to play more minutes.
"It was good to finish with 90 minutes at Villa and that will bring confidence. I still believe I'm capable of doing a good job."
