Liverpool midfielder rules out exit

Juventus target Emre Can has ruled out a January move away from Liverpool by airing a desire to win a trophy with the club.

The Germany international continues to be heavily linked with a switch to reigning Serie A champions Juventus at some stage, with his contract at Anfield running down. He is due to hit free agency in the summer, with Goal revealing that Juve has pieced together a package they are confident will secure the 23-year-old’s services. Can has now suggested that he will wait until the end of the season before making a decision on his future, with his intention to help Liverpool end their wait for major silverware and leave on a high.

-First of all, there are still many games with Liverpool to concentrate on, but I hope to be able to stay healthy and go to the World Cup in the summer. We have been in a good way and we want to try to continue winning as many games as possible and hopefully, that can mean having a good run in the FA Cup as well as the Premier League and the Champions League. We want to win a trophy. We are full of belief that winning a title is something this squad is capable of achieving and we will give our best, he told the Reds’ official match-day programme. 

If Can is to leave Merseyside, then he will depart as a man who has passed the 150-game mark for Liverpool – with that milestone reached against West Brom in December.
