Can is of course already permitted to hold formal talks with foreign clubs as he is in the last six months of his Liverpool contract, although he also refused to rule out penning an extension to remain at Anfield when quizzed on the subject in January.

Emre Can has put all contract negotiations on hold until the end of the season and, as a result of that, Juventus are anxious. However, some recent contacts from Bayern have been "pressing" the Liverpool player's staff, with the club believing they could bring him alongside Leon Goretzka as two big free agent signings next summer.

"I think Liverpool have made him a better player and in Jurgen Klopp and his coaching staff I think they are ideal for him".

Juventus chief executive Giuseppe Marotta has admitted that the reigning Italian champions face serious competition to land long-term target Emre Can from Liverpool, with fresh speculation once more linking Bayern Munich and Real Madrid with the German midfielder.

And regardless of whether any of that is true-or if the enquiries of a club like Madrid or Bayern, if they're even real, actually have a chance of leading to a firm offer-while Can hasn't signed with Juventus the uncertainty itself is cause for concern for the Serie A giants.

Reds legend Steven Gerrard recently pleaded with the 24-year-old to reconsider leaving Merseyside.
