EMRE CAN remains in a contract stand-off with Liverpool, according to reports.
Can has struggled to hold down a first-team spot for Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp preferring to partner Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum in midfield instead.
The German, who will be a free agent next year, was in line for a new deal after Philippe Coutinho penned a five-year extension back in January.
However, things haven’t quite panned out the way for player and club, the Daily Mirror claim.
The report suggests the 23-year-old’s agent wants to see his client double his wages from £35,000 a week.
But Liverpool, it is said, feel the present demands are too big.
It is suggested the longer the impasse goes on, this could alert several Bundesliga clubs including Bayer Leverkusen and Hoffenheim to his situation.
The report also indicates that the Reds won’t be held to ransom.
Should the situation remain unresolved, the Anfield outfit could be tempted to cash in on a player they signed three years ago for £10million.
