Liverpool Want To Replace Star Man Emre Can With Roma Ace Kevin Strootman

Liverpool will not be selling Emre Can in January but unless he signs a contract extension the Germany international will be leaving on a free at the end of the season.

Reports continue to link Can with a move to reigning Serie A champions Juventus.

The latest reports from Italy suggest that as luck would have it the Reds have found a potential replacement in the Serie A.

The Dutch midfielder has been closely linked with a move to the Premier League for a few seasons now but has up till now opted to stay in Italy.

Roma would reportedly be willing to sell for the right price.

Strootman would not be available for Champions League football if he were to make the move as he is cup-tied in the competition.

The Reds will be looking to strengthen their squad after selling Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142 million.

Can has however, not completely ruled out the prospect of staying on at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp continues to use the midfielder of Turkish origin as a first-team player.

The Reds are hopeful they can persuade Can to extend his contract this season according to the Echo.

Liverpool have received no information from Can and that his representatives remain keen on negotiating a new deal.
