This should be good news, but it doesn’t really sit that well with us.
According to journalist Mootaz Chehade, as well as multiple Italian outlets, such as calciomercato, Emre Can has changed his mind about wanting to leaving Liverpool.
Emre Can is impressed with the ambition of the club and is willing to renew his contract at Liverpool, talks ongoing now with the club. there's a high chance he receives the medical green light before the CL final and be available for selection should Liverpool qualify.

The German is impressed with Liverpool’s ‘ambition’ after seeing our triumphant 5-2 Champions League semi-final victory over AS Roma, in which he took no part of due to an ongoing back injury.
Who does he think he is?!
If Liverpool’s ambition under Jurgen Klopp wasn’t already blindingly obvious, then we’re not sure Can has been paying much attention.
The 24-year-old’s contract expires in the summer, and it looked until now that he’d 100% be leaving for pastures new.
But this latest report throws a spanner in the works.
It’s not like he’s Mo Salah or Roberto Firmino. He’s a talented, if inconsistent, midfielder, who has as many good games as average ones.
Still, after taking a deep breath and thinking about the bigger picture, we still want him to stay.
After all, if he extends his contract and wants to leave next summer, we’d get £50m-odd for him in the current market. Or he might fulfil his potential and help us win the Premier League.
