Can puts Liverpool contract talks on hold amid Juventus rumours

Madrid have been watching Can in recent weeks and have come away impressed with his performances as they prepare to step up their interest in the combative midfielder.

Emre Can has revealed that his agent has "blocked all negotiations" about his future as the speculation about his Liverpool FC situation continues.

"Of course, I have to think about my footballing future", he said.

Can has started 22 times for Liverpool in the Premier League this season, with two more appearances coming from the bench. The former Bayern Munich youth player has experience playing as a central midfielder, defensive midfielder, right-back and centre-back and has demonstrated quality in each of those positions.

"We want to finish in second place in the Premier League, we're in the Champions League quarter-finals and we want to progress".

'I haven't signed for any other club, I'm just focused on this season.

The Germany international has been strongly linked with a move to Juventus when his Liverpool contract expires in June, having failed to agree a new deal at Anfield. He has netted three goals including two in his last five league games for the Reds. There have even been reports that the deal with the Turin giants had been already struck, but Can has firmly denied that.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has reportedly put Juventus on hold as he waits for a dream move to Spain.

However, Can has insisted that is not the case and he is purely focused on performing for Liverpool FC between now and the end of the season.
