Juventus’ general manager Beppe Marotta has claimed that a number of clubs will be interested in signing Liverpool midfielder Emre Can, reports Sky Sport Italia.
The Germany international will come to the end of his contract at Anfield in the summer.
With just a matter of months before Can becomes a free agent, there does not seem to be any movement with regards to a new deal.
The possibility of signing fresh terms has not been completely ruled out, but Marotta seems to think that the 24-year-old will have his pick of clubs come the summer.
Juventus have been heavily linked with the German all season, and they have not been shy about their interest.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Marotta said:
“He’s one of the most appetising players both for his value and also because, as you all know, he’s a free transfer in June. It’s normal that there are clubs lining up to sign him.
“We are following and we have followed our path and we know there are rival clubs who certainly belong to the best in the world, but the fact is it will be the player who decides his destiny.
“So if he decides to come to Turin and play for Juventus, we will be happy. If he decides to join another club, then obviously we will seize another opportunity.”
If Can has already decided to leave the Merseyside outfit, then one could question why the Reds continue to play him.
This season, the midfielder has started 28 games in all competitions and has performed well in recent outings.
In his last four appearances, Can has scored twice and created a single assist for the Reds.
Manager Jurgen Klopp clearly feels that the midfielder has plenty to offer, but if the ex-Bayer Leverkusen player has one eye on the exit door, it will make it difficult for the team to cope if he leaves Anfield.
