Emre Can set to extend contract at Liverpool

Emre Can is set to sign a new 4 year contract with Liverpool, worth in the region of £100,000 per week, and break the hearts of Paris St Germain and Juventus, who have both shown interest in signing the German international, who’s current contract expires at the end of next season.

Can, 23, has been at Liverpool for three seasons now, racking up 129 appearances for the Reds since his move from Bayer Leverkusen, but it has been this last season where he has really made his mark on the Premier League – scoring one of the goals of the season against Watford which capped off an excellent season for the midfielder.

Jurgen Klopp sees Can as an integral part of Liverpool’s future, as they attack trophies on the domestic and European stage – and Liverpool fans will certainly be heartened to hear of his willingness to commit to the Anfield club.

Elsewhere, Liverpool remain deadlocked with AS Roma over the swoop for ex-Chelsea winger Mohammed Saleh, who has expressed a desire to return to England. understands that Roma are holding out for the £30m valuation they have on the Egyptian international, with Liverpool willing to shell out an initial £25m, rising to the Roma figure with appearances. The feeling is though that this deal will be agreed shortly and it won’t be long before Klopp parades his first major signing of the summer at Anfield.
