Can has not played for Liverpool since the club’s 5-0 rout over Watford on March 17.
Throughout his injury absence, there have ben rumblings about the midfielder’s future.
The 24-year-old, who has earned 20 caps for Germany, has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield due to the fact that he has not signed a new contract.

Emre's name is not to be anywhere near the team sheet come the champions league final. We don't and won't need him.

He had a scan on his attitude at the same time. The results showed conclusively that he suffers from delusions of grandeur and chronic Beckenbauer/Matthaeus aspiration syndrome.
