Emre Can Admits Juventus Links Are an 'Honour' But Insists He Is Focused on Liverpool

Emre Can has admitted that it is an "honour" to be linked with a move to Juventus, but stressed that he is fully "focused on Liverpool".

The German midfielder is in the final year of his contract at Anfield, and has repeatedly been at the centre of speculation over a move to Italy. And though Can has insisted that he remains happy at Liverpool, there remains doubt over his future at the club.

"It's always an honour to receive an offer from such a renowned club, but currently I am only focused on the season with Liverpool,” Can said, quoted by the Liverpool Echo. “My agent takes care of the rest.”


He added: "The Premier League is just a really cool league, the most interesting in the world, but you must always respect other big clubs and leagues.

"You never know what will happen. And I don't know what Jurgen Klopp plans."

Can has made nine appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this season, scoring twice and establishing himself as first choice in midfield.

The 23-year-old scored his first international goal for Germany against Azerbaijan on Sunday, and he has expressed his hope of adding more to his tally.

“With Liverpool I think I’ve got about 10 goals in total so far," he said. "Whether it’s running with the ball and finishing or shooting from long distance, I always try to find the opportunity but it isn’t always easy.

"At times this season I’ve been dropping deeper but there have still been chances for me to get forward to support the attack and even score."
