One of the biggest deals for Liverpool in the summer nears completion as Emre Can is set to sign a new £100,000-a-week deal with us. Juventus have been linked with a move for the German international and with only 12 months remaining in his current contract, there were fears that the former Leverkusen man was willing to run his deal out and move on a free transfer next season.
However, reports from Tutto Mercato claim that the 23-year-old will sign a new deal to stay at Anfield till 2021 and put an end to all the rumours of him being sold by Jurgen Klopp.
The German certainly stepped up in the latter half of the season, especially when Jordan Henderson was injured and he ensured that we made it to the top four ahead of next season. His wonder goal against Watford remains in memory and hopefully, he can continue this form when the new season starts.
This deal being done certainly calmed the nerves of some fans and they took to Twitter to share their delight as the German could make Anfield his home till 2021 at least.
2 imminent announcements I expect from @LFC
Emre Can new contract ✔
Mohamed Salah signing ✔

Quite frankly, for me, renewing Emre Can’s contract is more important than signing a new player.

Giving Emre Can a new contract shouldn’t be a option, we have to offer him a new contract

Emre Can contract and Salah deal will be completed soon but I’m not satisfied until we get a top CB/CM. Anxious over van Dijk/Keita

100k contract for Emre Can is worth every penny

If, as suggest, Emre Can renews his deal until 2021 then I can confidently say he’ll be the clubs captain by the end of that deal.

Remember when majority of Liverpool fans wanted Emre Can gone cause he was in poor form for a month or two? You all look stupid now
