Contract Issues at Liverpool for Emre Can
Around Spring 2017 it appeared that Liverpool and Emre were in discussions but were not willing to acquiesce to Emre's terms on a new contract. This was despite Emre having been one of the most utilised Liverpool players across the previous seasons.
His contract was due to expire in the summer of 2018 but the reds did not entertain any bids in the summer of 2017.
Speculation slowly mounted at the start of the 2017-18 season that Emre Can would end up leaving for a free, with Juventus linked as a potential target.
Liverpool continued to stick with the player and by the end of the January 2018 transfer window the answer, and a potential contract extension were no nearer.
