Mikkel Beck had no concerns about the left-back's ability to succeed at Goodison.
“I don't think he could've played much better. He has had a phenomenal season and has done all I expected of him," he told the Liverpool Echo.
“I knew he could play in any championship in Europe and before he came to England he had already done well in France, Italy and Spain so it is no surprise what he's doing at the moment.
“This is Lucas continuing his great career and continuing to do really well for the teams he plays for."
