Emre Can has kicked off another storm, thanks to his latest comments on the interest from Juventus. We all know that the Italian champions are interested in the player and that they had bid for the player in the summer. However, that deal did not take place.
The Turin giants could look to sign the midfielder as a free agent next season when the German’s contract is up. Can, for his part, has been stalling on his contract as we do not want to include a release clause.
The German stated that it was an honour to receive the offer from the Italian side but that he was concentrating on the season ahead. The German also added that the rest of it all was being taken care off by his agent, which does not bode well for us.
This statement certainly got the Liverpool fans a little riled up and here are some of the reactions from Twitter.
Massive blow if we lose Emre Can. His goal for Germany yesterday was an indication of his quality. Very bright future ahead.

Emre Can couldn’t be more at Juventus

This season Emre Can is honouring his last season for us, he’s leaving next season. Shame we never extended his contract early enough.

I cannot understand why we would continue to play Emre Can. Flirting with Juventus and refusing to sign a contract.

Naby Keita in, Emre Can out this summer? Certainly wouldn’t surprise me.

Emre Can career:
16/17: when contract talk started: world class
17/18: shite again
He’s a disgrace to this club

At the end of this season, Emre Can will still only be 24 but have played 170+ games for LFC. Losing him on a free would be a huge blow. https://t.co/cCEzTmEa0Q

Emre Can can fuck off, giving it large when he’s been mostly shit for us. Not sure why we kept him

Losing Emre Can on a free is one of the most embarrassing things to happen in recent years

It’s a huge step backwards if we don’t get Can to sign a new deal.
He’s only 23.. so much potential. #LFC

Next season Keita will replace Can and Lallana will replace Phil (like how Moreno replaced Milner at LB this season).
The LFC/FSG way

He’s gone. You can blame the club all you like but he clearly wants to go, he’d have signed by now if he wanted to stay. https://t.co/U4xtYQm59e
