Emre Can finally addresses the rumours linking him with a move to Juventus

Liverpool FC v Sevilla FC - UEFA Champions League

Emre Can has become an important player for Liverpool since arriving at the club.

The 23-year-old opened his account for Germany on Sunday night when he bagged a screamer against Azerbaijan to score his first goal for his country and the 18th time of asking.

For Liverpool, Can has become one of the vital cogs to the Red's midfield alongside Jordan Henderson and has rapidly become one of the first names on Jurgen Klopp's teamsheet.

It, therefore, comes as no surprise that plenty of clubs around Europe would be taking an interest in Liverpool's midfield dynamo.

Considering the Merseyside club paid £9.75 million for Can from Bayer Leverkusen in 2013, that has to be considered a steal in today's market. Not only that, but he's now worth a hell of a lot more.

At least he would be if he wasn't in the final year of his contract.

It's been well documented that Italian giants Juventus made a bid for the former Bayern Munich man during the summer and Liverpool rebuffed their offer.

However, Juve will be able to speak to Can in January and get their man on a pre-contract agreement.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Can claims it is an honour to receive an offer from Juventus and he wasn't ruling anything out.

"It's always an honour to receive an offer from such a renowned club, but currently I am only focused on the season with Liverpool,” Can said.

“My agent takes care of the rest.”

While the allure of Juve might be too much to resist for some, Liverpool have an interesting project going under Klopp and with a better defence could certainly challenge for the title.

Playing in the Premier League appears to still be a draw in itself to Can: "The Premier League is just a really cool league, the most interesting in the world, but you must always respect other big clubs and leagues.

"You never know what will happen. And I don't know what Jurgen Klopp plans."

While it's highly doubtful Klopp is going to suddenly axe Can from his plans, the German midfielder will certainly have some decisions to make in January.
