Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has pleaded with Emre Can to stay put at Anfield.
Can’s current deal with the Reds is set to expire at the end of the season and he has yet to sign a new deal with the club, amidst speculation that he could be set to join Juventus at the end of the season.
Can has established himself as a major part of Jurgen Klopp’s first team and it will surely be a big blow if he departs.
Though Gerrard wants Can to remain with the club, he does feel that it is only a matter of time before the German departs.
“I think Liverpool have made him a better player and in JurgenKlopp and his coaching staff I think they are perfect for him,” the Liverpool legend said on BT Sport.
“I can’t make decisions for Emre Can but for me, in his shoes, I would be a bit more patient with Liverpool and I would hang on. I think Liverpool – the club and the fans – have a lot of belief in him.
“I think you can see that he’s been asked the question many times and if he had decided he was going to stay at Liverpool, I think everyone would know that by now.
“You still have that little bit of hope as a Liverpool fan that he might change his mind but for me, for it to go to the back end of January it’s a concern.”
