Liverpool star set to snub Juventus to stay at Anfield for £100,000 a-week deal
Liverpool star Emre Can is set to snub Juventus and PSG to stay at Anfield according to reports in Italy.
Tutto Mercato Web claim that Can is set to put pen-to-paper on a £100,000 a-week deal which will keep him at the club until 2021.
Can faced an uncertain future at Liverpool due to having just over 12 months remaining on his contract without committing to an extension.

The central midfielder currently earns £55,000 a-week and his new deal would almost double his existing deal.
Italian giants Juventus have been closely linked with a move for the central midfielder of Turkish origin.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp had however, always underlined that he was happy with Can and keen on him to stay on at the club.
“After his bicycle kick probably everyone wants him to stay,” Klopp said in May. “I think it is no secret how much I like Emre.
“He likes the club and that is a completely normal situation. We are in talks and there is absolutely no pressure, it is all good. It is two partners with big respect for each other. If we can keep good players that makes sense for development and he is one of these good players. I am quite positive.”
The 23-year-old has made 129 appearances for Liverpool since joining from Bayer Leverkusen in 2014 – including 40 games last season.
Can is currently on international duty with Germany and is expected to feature in the Confederations Cup in Russia.
