Manchester City Want Emre Can From Liverpool As Borussia Dortmund Join The Race For Juventus Midfield Target
Can’s current contract with the Reds is set to expire at the end of the season and now the German star is demanding a mammoth wage packet to stay put at Liverpool.
Since arriving at Anfield from Bayer Leverkusen, Can has displayed good from and has become one of the key players for the Reds and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is desperate to tie him down to a new deal.
Can has made it clear that he will only stay put if the Reds offer him a wage packet of around £150,000-a-week – which is double the amount that he currently takes home – but the Liverpool bosses are not ready to match his wage demands.
Can remains a long-term target of Juventus and reports in Italy claim that his international team-mate Sami Khedira is leaving no stones unturned to convince the Liverpoll star to join him in Turin.
Can could also opt to hold talks with foreign clubs in January and force a move away from Anfield before the end of the season.
But it is understood that Klopp is a huge admirer of Can and his game style and it is being said that the former Dortmund boss will give his best to keep him – despite the arrival of Naby Keita next summer.
