Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has spoken today on his clubs efforts to sign German international Emre Can from Liverpool.
“We will do everything to take Emre Can,” Marotta told RMC Sport of the 24-year-old defensive midfielder, whose contract expires in June 2018.
“We’ve made the first contacts with his entourage, but it does not mean achieving our goal.
“It will not be easy because Liverpool themselves will try to renew the contract, without forgetting the alternative possibility that other top European clubs will try to reach agreement with him. But I repeat our attempt will be made with every effort possible.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had his say on Can recently, and it is fair to say that at this stage it looks more likely that he will go then stay.
Giuseppe Marotta also spoke on how he felt Juventus season was going so far
“We’re now in the intermediary stage of the season, we are sailing in optimum position to achieve all the objectives we have set out.
“The aim is to go all the way in all competitions, to continue on this path in the league, beat Tottenham in the Champions League and Atalanta in the Italian Cup.”
