Liverpool news: Emre Can transfer to Juventus hits major snag for two reasons | Football | Sport

Liverpool are yet to tie Can down to a new deal with his current contract running out at the end of the season.

It is looking increasingly likely the Germany international will leave Anfield and Juventus have been leading the race for his signature since last summer.

Jurgen Klopp has remained optimistic the midfielder will agree new terms to stay at Liverpool.

But reports in Italy have suggested it is only a matter of time before Juventus make their move.

However, there have been no breakthroughs with the Serie A giants and they are growing worried they could lose out on their No 1 transfer target.

That’s according to Italian publication Tuttosport, who claim both Real and Bayern Munich have expressed strong interest.

Can has established himself as a regular in Klopp’s starting line-up at Liverpool and has even been named club captain three times this season.

Reds legend Steven Gerrard recently pleaded with the 24-year-old to reconsider leaving Merseyside.

“I think Liverpool have made him a better player and in Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff I think they are perfect for him,” Gerrard said last month.

“I can’t make decisions for Emre Can but for me, in his shoes, I would be a bit more patient with Liverpool and I would hang on.

“I think Liverpool – the club and the fans – have a lot of belief in him.”
