Revealed: Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp issues Emre Can contract update

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has however, stated that there is nothing to worry about.
“It makes no sense to talk about it, but obviously I heard there was a story out there,” Jurgen Klopp stated during yesterday’s press conferance.
“We are in talks, what can I say? They are good. Emre likes to be here, we really like him as a person and as a player.
“So there are talks, nothing else to say about it, and until the final year starts, there are a few months still.
“If there’s something to say about it, you will be the first to know again!”
Liverpool currently find themselves in fourth place, five points ahead of Arsenal. However, the Gunners have two games in hand.
The Reds will be looking to continue t take on Manchester City this weekend.
Emre Can has provided three assists and scored four goals in 30 apperances this season.
