Liverpool want-away midfielder Emre Can is set to remain at Anfield amid interest from Juventus as he is reportedly negotiating a deal with the Reds hierarchy.
The Germany international could be staying under Klopp’s tutelage beyond this summer if the Reds are willing to include a release clause in the proposed three-year contract offered him by the club, according to the Daily Mirror.
The British publication reports that the German request might be turned down by Liverpool hierarchy who are not interested in including a release clause in the contract signed by their players.
Can is currently out injured but he is said to make a return in time so as to be available for selection against Real Madrid in this season’s Champions League final match against Real Madrid on the 26th of this month at Kiev, Russia.
The 24-year-old would be allowed to leave the Merseyside club as a free agent by the close of this season should he fail to strike a deal with his employer before the summer transfer market begins.
With just 35 days to the summer World Cup in Russia, Emre Can wants to maintain a great shape before the tournament so as to be included in Joachim Low’s World Cup squad. Can was part of the 2014 triumphant squad who defeated Argentina via Mario Gotze’s beautiful goal in Brazil and he would be hoping his teammates repeat that feat once again in Russia.
