Manchester City are set to go head to head with several other European clubs in the hunt to sign Liverpool midfielder Emre Can. ?
Juventus, who have had a long standing interest in the German international are now in a three way battle, according to TuttoSport, via the ?Mirror, to sign Can next summer with his contract set to expire at the end of the campaign.
There has been no sign that the 23-year-old will sign a contract extension to see him play beyond next summer at Anfield.
As per the rules, foreign sides are able to approach players in January with only six months remaining on their current deals to sign players on a free transfer in the summer, and with that, Juventus and Bayern Munich will get a head start on Manchester City.
But finances aren’t an issue for the English side who are looking ever so impressive this season under Guardiola, and could offer a lump sum to tempt Liverpool in securing an amount for Can instead of letting him go for nothing.
Emre Can is so bang average he’s only being chased by farmers sides like Juventus, Bayern Munich, City and United; but because he’s a threat to Jordy English all our fans just say he’s crap. Why is he to blame for this contract debacle when the club allowed it to get to this? ?

The report continues on that Juventus are willing to offer £10m for the Liverpool midfielder in January to snap him up, however Jurgen Klopp will think his fellow German is worth more than that.
Will he take the risk and keep him until the summer to try and pen Can to a new deal, or are his Liverpool days over?
