Emre Can is believed to be keen on extending his stay at Liverpool amid speculation linking him to a summer departure.
The German is now in the final year of his current deal, with talks over an extension having seemingly broken down in recent weeks.
It is believed the basis of the latest dispute is Liverpool’s refusal to insert the release clause Can is requesting as part of any potential deal.
Multiple publications, including the Mirror, are now reporting that the midfielder has told the Reds he will put pen to paper if his wage demands are met.
Juventus are notable admirers of the 23-year-old and are preparing to pounce if Can does land on the transfer market at the end of the season.
Manchester City are also supposedly monitoring the former Bayer Leverkusen man, who could be available for a free transfer if an agreement isn’t reached.
Can has emerged as a prominent figure in Jurgen Klopp’s midfield over the past year, diminishing all previous doubts over his value to the Reds.
Losing him without gaining a penny would be a crushing blow given his progress on Merseyside and the rate at which he is continuing to improve.
Fans will also be disappointed if they don’t get the opportunity to see Can alongside Naby Keita, who will officially sign for the club in July 2018.
