Manchester City are among the clubs interested in signing the German midfielder, whose contract at Anfield runs out at the end of the current season.
Lifting the “can” on his future: Emre Can has heavily implied that his future next season will not be at Liverpool
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can is almost sure to leave the club in the summer as a free agent, after failing to agree a new contract on Merseyside. The German was heavily linked to a move to Juventus in the summer, but a move didn’t materialize. He has played regularly for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, starting 22 Premier League games and recording 3 goals and 4 assists. Signed from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2014, Can has made over 150 appearances in all competitions for the Reds. Still only 24, there is a long future ahead of him, and his next career move will be very important.
In an interview to German daily Suddeutsche Zeitung, as relayed here by Liverpool Echo, Can stated that he expects to be at a “very, very big club” next season, following the World Cup in Russia. With 13 caps for his country in 2017, he could play a big role in the tournament, something that could entice the best of the best to come for him.
“Sure, the Bundesliga would interest me, why not? Although I must say honestly that the level has waned in recent years.
The Premier League has the power to spend more money on players than the Bundesliga . This is very, very important for players.
I have the self-confidence to say that my qualities are sufficient to play in a very big club next season.
I’m doing great in England. The Spanish league is also attractive. The same applies to Germany, where tactics are concerned, and the Italian club football, which has recently caught up.
Incidentally, the same applies to France, this league has now established itself as one of the best in Europe. Therefore, I do not want to exclude anything because I do not know what I will do from the summer.”
According to Football Italia, Manchester City are one of the clubs interested in securing his signature in the summer. Pep Guardiola’s men are on course to become champions with record points this season, but will look to continue improving their squad. Can’s addition in midfield will add further steel and solidarity to the City midfield which already boasts of box-to-box midfielders like Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan.
Also interested in signing Can are Bayern Munich. The midfielder was part of the Bavarian club’s youth setup, and also made 7 appearances for the senior side. He was sold by Pep Guardiola to Leverkusen in 2013. There was a buyback clause in his contract, one which the club decided not to activate when he moved to Liverpool.
