Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has repeated that the Italians are interested in signing Emre Can but will need to fight off a host of top European clubs.

Liverpool have their work cut out for themselves with regard to Emre Can. In the next four months, the Reds need to convince the German to stay at the club with his contract set to expire.

At this point, there is no guarantee of anything but Liverpool need to continue negotiating with his representatives International Soccer Management in order for their to be a chance for him to be retained.

As Can told Sky Sports earlier this week, he does not know whether or not a decision has been reached on where he will in the summer.

And once again, Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has reiterated that Juve is keen on signing the German international but face competition from a host of other clubs.

“Emre Can is one of the most desirable players, for his ability and also because, as you know, he’ll be a free agent in June,” Marotta said.

“It’s normal that situation has attracted a number of suitors for him as a player, we’re doing and we have done our path.

“We know there are other clubs competing for him and these clubs are definitely among the best in the world, the fact remains that, as I always say, a player’s destiny is in his head.”

Emre Can scored for Liverpool last weekend in a 4-1 drubbing of West Ham and his good form in recent weeks has led many fans to suggest that he’s happy to stay at the club past his expiring contract.

Marotta added that if they missed out on Can – a situation he believes possible – Juventus will move onto other targets.

The Juve chief finished, saying: “So if he decides to come to Turin with Juventus we’ll be happy, and if he decides to join another team then we’ll exploit another opportunity.”
