The future of Emre Can has been a big topic of debate in the Transfer Tavern over the last few months.
The German’s contract at Anfield is set to expire this summer, and so his long-term prospects at Anfield have been looking increasingly bleak as of late. Unfortunately for Liverpool, the saga has rolled on whilst Can has been increasing in influence at Anfield – with Jurgen Klopp clearly a big fan of the German.
A midfield regular at present, Can has impressed alongside the likes of Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, forming one-third of one of the Premier League’s most impressive midfields.
However, despite his significance, it doesn’t appear as though Can has his heart set on an extended Anfield stay, with the Mirror reporting that Bayern Munich are the favourites for his signature come the summer.
This news has gone down very well over on Twitter, with Liverpool fans taking to the social media site to discuss the rumour. Indeed, many are saying exactly the same thing – he’s perfect!
Jorginho has, of course, impressed for Napoli this season, having emerged as the perfect central midfielder to move play forward and dictate the speed of the game.
Clearly, then, he’d be a decent fit in place of Can, and the move would certainly go down well with the Anfield faithful.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
Im looking forward to Liverpools last games this season, but if we lose Can and bring in Jorginho, maybe a goalkeeper and another attacking option (Ndidi as well), I would be more than happy. Edwards and co. have planned good before and bought smart. Lets repeat it again. #LFC

I would 100% take Ndidi and Jorginho if Can leaves in the summer. Both very combative and good on the ball. Keita, Jorginho and Ox would be an outstanding midfield 3. That midfield 3 playing behind Manè, Salah and Firmino would be frightening #LFC

This is where we need to be shopping this summer, class player!

Dont want to lose Can, but if losing Can means Jorginho in then I’ve only got one thing to say… Auf wiedersehen Emre! #LFC

Looking forward to see Jorginho live on Friday night #lfc

Jorginho in & Emre out.

No one realises how much I’d love these two to partner each other Jorginho dictating play and Naby just pushing forward and causing mayhem and supplying the front three #LFC #Keita pic.twitter.com/HKoxrv0umx
