Emre Can: Ready to prove himself

Liverpool are reportedly set to offer midfield dynamo Emre Can a new long-term deal at Anfield.

The Guardian claims talks have already begun with the 22-year-old Can, as they look to secure his services at Anfield for the long term.

Can is two years into his current four-year contract at Anfield, having joined for £9.75million from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2014 – a signing of Brendan Rodgers.

The Germany international, who is in France for Euro 2016, had an impressive season at the heart of Liverpool’s midfield and his form improved after the arrival of Jurgen Klopp oin October 2015.

Can made 49 appearances last season, scoring twice, but he was a key figure for Liverpool and Klopp is known to be a big admirer of the Frankfurt-born star.

The club are hopeful that Can will put pen to paper on a deal before the start of next season.

Can last month thanked Klopp for playing him in midfield and says Liverpool’s target for next season must be the Premier League title.

“I think it’s my best season. I played a lot of games and I play in the position I want to play. I’m very happy that I play there now,” Can told Liverpool’s official website.

“With Jürgen Klopp, I think I have made another step and I want to try to always give my best and I want to be better and I want to help the team.”
