The 23-year-old has just over 12 months remaining on his contract but has yet to sign an extension with the Reds.

Can is however, not a first-choice target for Juventus boss Allegri.

Meanwhile, Italian newspaper II Messaggero also reported that there has been contact between Can’s representatives and Juventus officials.

Additionally, the report claims that the Reds want £26 million for Can, a fee the Serie A champions are not willing to pay.

Despite claims that Can could be headed for a summer exit his manager Jurgen Klopp has had nothing but praise for the midfielder and confirmed talks over a contract renewal in May.

“After his bicycle kick probably everyone wants him to stay,” Klopp was quoted as saying in the Guardian.

“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.”

Can finished the season strong starting in Liverpool’s last 13 games of the season, playing a key role in finishing the season in the top four and booking a place in the Champions League.

It is worth noting that Can was filling in for injured captain Jordan Henderson and it remains to be seen which of the two midfielders Klopp considers first-choice when both are fit.
