Emre Can has become an increasingly important player under Jurgen Klopp this season. Though typically used as more of a rotational and jack-of-all-trades style player for much of his career at Anfield, the German has finally found a more consistent role in the team this term.
Controlling the midfield alongside the likes of Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson, the midfielder offers a fantastic balance of power, technical ability and stature in the middle-of-the-park, giving a fantastic balance alongside a few of Klopp’s other midfield options.
His future, then, is unsurprisingly quite a concern. His current contract expires at the end of the season, and there have not been any signs that an agreement is close to being found.
Unfortunately for Liverpool, that’s still not the case, but there is some news on that front for the Reds. According to Sky Sports, the German is set for talks with Liverpool over the coming weeks as the two parties look to find an agreement.
It’s certainly a move that makes sense for Liverpool as not only is he important to Klopp’s plans, but losing him on a free would be very disappointing from a financial standpoint.
The fans over on the Liverpool Reddit fan page have been having their say on the matter, and it’s fair to say that they’re all pretty eager for Can to renew. He’s clearly turned a lot of heads with his recent fantastic performances, and that has been reflected by the opinions of the Anfield faithful.
Can’s time at Anfield hasn’t been unanimously successful, and he’s been a player that has been continuing to develop at the club. That being said, he’s looking to reach his peak now, and as one Liverpool fan notes below, he could now go on to be a key player for the Reds going forward if he stays.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
