Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is still hopeful of finding a favorable situation to Emre Can’s situation.

The young German midfielder is out of contract next summer and the negotiations over a new contract have been dragging for months. The Reds have offered new terms, but the player’s camp stalled the discussions over demands for a release clause.

It is reported that Can wanted a release clause in his contract to facilitate a move to another club if a bid comes by. However, Liverpool are not willing to put in a release clause and even if they do, it won’t be at the lower levels as desired by the player.

That meant that the discussions have hit an impasse and with every passing day, Can is moving closer to the exit door. With his contract set to expire in summer, he would be free to negotiate with foreign clubs in January.

And, in Can’s case, that foreign club would be Juventus. The Italian Champions were long-term suitors of the midfielder having checked his availability multiple times over the past couple of transfer windows.

As it now looks increasingly likely that the German international could leave Anfield on a free transfer, manager Klopp is still hopeful of seeing a compromise reached.

“There is nothing new,” Klopp was quoted by Liverpool Echo.

“I said it a few times, it’s our job to make this club as exciting as possible.

“It’s allowed that he could sign a contract (with Liverpool) in May. I have no problem with that.

“As long as Emre doesn’t give me one sign that his mind is elsewhere, I don’t have to talk about this. Everything is okay from my side.”

A pre-contract agreement with any European club in January could derail all Klopp’s hopes but the tactician expects his countryman to extend his stay at the club – even if it takes longer discussions.

He agreed that it is a situation that would allow other clubs to swoop for his player, but something he can’t avoid. Klopp indicated that he would probably do the same if another player is at the end of his contract and is available on a free transfer.

However, Klopp was quick to defuse the severity of the situation and indicate that he is not flustered by the situation as long as Can focuses on the job at hand.

Why did it come to this? Ideally, the club should have extended Can’s contract by now or should have cashed on him. A player shouldn’t be allowed to hold the club at ransom over a contract, no matter how good he is.

Let’s get this done once for all and move on from the situation.

Blow for Liverpool as Chelsea look set to seal £60million deal for Bundesliga star

Christian Pulisic

Chelsea are set to win the race for Borussia Dortmund sensation Christian Pulisic, according to reports from the Daily Mail (h/t Metro).

The 20-year-old American has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United in recent weeks, but the report claims the winger wants to join Chelsea.

The report adds that Jurgen Klopp has been trying to sign Pulisic for a number of years, but Chelsea could announce a summer deal for the American in the coming month.

The American has been one of the most exciting players in the Bundesliga for a couple of years, and losing him to Chelsea would be a huge blow.

Christian Pulisic

The report adds that the American wants to leave in the summer and that Dortmund want to cash in on the player. The fee for the youngster has not been decided between Chelsea and the Bundesliga side, but the report claims it is around £60million.

Pulisic has somewhat been overshadowed by the form of Jadon Sancho as the English youngster has helped Dortmund to an unbeaten start in the Bundesliga.

The youngster is used more as a substitute these days in the Bundesliga by Dortmund and a fresh challenge will do him some good.

“This one is definitely the answer” – Former Tottenham boss claims this Liverpool star is the signing of the season

Alisson Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood shared his opinion on who the best signing has been in the Premier League this season.

The Englishman went for a goalkeeper and named Alisson while discussing the signings with Robbie Savage on BT Sport (h/t Express):

“They needed to fix a problem they had, and a goalkeeper was obviously a problem for Liverpool.

“They’ve tried to sign goalkeepers in the past and it hasn’t been the answer – this one is definitely the answer.

“He’s outstanding on his feet, he sets the moves off very quickly but most importantly, he keeps the ball out the net. He makes big saves at the right time.

“He has quiet periods in games then he makes a huge save – and that is, for me, a tell-tale sign of a world class goalie.”

Alisson

Alisson has made several top quality saves since joining Liverpool. The one against Eden Hazard vs Chelsea, the point-blank save off Andre Gomes in the Merseyside derby and his latest was the incredible last-minute save in the Napoli tie.

Sherwood talked up that save in the Champions League and claimed it was Peter Schmeichel-esque. The Englishman also claimed that the Brazilian would have saved the Demba Ba goal during that incredible 2013-14 season where we missed the title.

“You can’t win zero without a good goalkeeper. Right now, Liverpool, they haven’t got the best but they’re right up there with the top three keepers in the Premier League.”

“Dont know where he goes from here now” – Some Liverpool fans concerned about youngster returning from loan deal

Ovie Ejaria and Jurgen Klopp

Ovie Ejaria is set to return to Liverpool and end his loan spell with Rangers early. The club released a statement regarding the 21-year-old who scored two goals in 28 games for Steven Gerrard’s side. The release added this was the best move for all involved.

“However, following discussions between the two clubs, as well as Ejaria and his family, it has been determined an early return to the Reds is in the best interests of all parties concerned.”

The release thanked the Scottish giants for helping the 21-year-old Englishman, and it will be interesting to see what the next step for the youngster would be.

Ejaria is one of the highly rated players in our youth system but for some reason, things just did not work out for him at Rangers.

We have another star on loan at Rangers in Ryan Kent, and the winger has been doing pretty well at the club. Many Liverpool fans chipped in with their thoughts regarding the return of Ejaria, and here are some reactions from Twitter.
