Jurgen Klopp fears that Liverpool contract rebel Emre Can might opt for a move to league rivals Manchester City, as the unsettled midfielder is eyeing an exit from Anfield this January. Can’s current contract with the club expires at the end of this season and the player has so far remained reluctant of extending the contract, following Liverpool’s disapproval with a particular release clause the player and his agent were looking for.
With Emre Can on the verge of leaving Anfield, many potential suitors have made their interest known in recent weeks, including Juventus and Borussia Dortmund. However, as per reports, Manchester City are preparing a stunning contract offer for the German International while Mail claims that Pep Guardiola’s men are currently in pole position to land the Liverpool star on a free transfer next season.
Emre Can will be a fantastic addition to the City squadron, with the club needing at least one more midfielder following Pep Guardiola’s disapproval in handing veteran midfielder Yaya Toure a new contract.
Fernandinho, who is also out of contract in June next year, is yet to sign a contract extension so far this season. It implies that Pep Guardiola might be in the hunt for a quality holding midfielder, who can not only be an upgrade to Fernandinho but can also provide stability to the midfield for future.
The German international has all the qualities to thrive under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola. The Citizens often lack dynamism when they switch to a defensive stance, and Emre Can, who is known for his agile and courageous nature of the play, can easily plug that gap by sitting in as the holding midfielder.
In addition, the German midfielder is quite comfortable in possession and overall ball-circulation is totally fantastic, meaning it won’t be a difficult job for him to get used to the Juego de Posicion system used by the Catalan boss. Can also fall deep into the midfield to guard the backline, while his occasional darting runs into the opposition half can cause some trouble for the opposing defence as well.
Made no mistake, Emre Can is one the hottest midfield prospects available in the market. At the age of just 23, the former Bayern Munich midfielder has a lot to offer. Given their ability to develop a decent player into a brilliant one, the best example being Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City might be an ideal destination for the Liverpool midfielder to further improve his overall ability.
