Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that they have been in touch with Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.
The Germany international looks set to wind down his contract at Anfield before leaving on a free transfer at the end of the campaign – and Italy looks a likely destination.
“Emre Can’s contract is expiring in the summer so you would expect that a club like ours have attention on him.” Marotta is quoted by Sky Sports.
“We have initiated contact but it does not mean it’s done.
“It will not be easy as Liverpool also want to renew his contract, without forgetting that there will be other clubs in for him.
“Our attempt is made with every effort possible.” he finished.
“He’ll stay beyond the winter.” Klopp told DAZN.
“Emre is still a young lad but he has developed into a great player and is very important for us.
“Sometimes a player just wants to sit out his contract.
“That’s not cool for the club, but there are moments in which you have to accept it.
“And as long as the player behaves like Emre does, then I have absolutely nothing to complain about.
“He gives everything he has and identifies with the club.” he finished.
