Juventus are reportedly looking to make a fresh bid for Liverpool midfielder Emre Can in the January transfer window after failing to sign him this summer.
Emre Can is into the final year of his current deal with Liverpool and so far has resisted signing a new contract with the Merseyside club.
Italian giants Juventus are well aware of this situation and are reportedly monitoring the German at the moment as they prepare to make an offer in January for the powerful midfielder.
Juventus had strongly pursued Can this summer but Liverpool were not ready to sell and the Premier League club is still hopeful of tying down the 23-year-old to a new deal in the coming months.
Should Liverpool fail to tie Can to Anfield between now and January, he will be eligible to negotiate a deal with other clubs according to the Bosman ruling and Juve will be hoping to force Liverpool to sell the player on a discounted fee during the winter transfer window as the prospect of losing him on a free looms large on the Reds.
Can is among the most improved players for the Reds in recent seasons and so far, has enjoyed an excellent start to the season, providing creativity from midfield during the absence of Philippe Coutinho and making the team tick.
The 23-year-old was at his best during Liverpool’s recent Champions League play-offs victory against Hoffenheim and even scored twice in the return leg at Anfield.
From Liverpool’s perspective, it would be ideal if Can signs a new deal and commits his future with the Merseyside club. However, should they fail to convince the player to stay at Anfield, they will undoubtedly hope that Can joins a foreign club rather than a domestic rival.
