“We are lucky to have him” – Liverpool fans react to Emre Can’s sensational performance against Hoffenheim

Following his latest display Liverpool fans will be hoping Can will put pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Merseyside based club. The Germany international has under 12-months remaining on his current deal.
Liverpool host their title rivals Arsenal at Anfield this weekend as they look to continue their winning run.
