Former Liverpool player tells Juventus to sign Emre Can

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp must win against Manchester United says John Aldridge

GETTY Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp must win against Manchester United says John Aldridge

Liverpool have tried tying Can down to a new deal for the last few months but as of yet, no progress has been made, which originally alerted Juventus to the Germany international's availability. "And I don't know what Jurgen Klopp plans [to do]".

The former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder has scored 10 goals in 138 appearances for the Reds, including two in a Champions League play-off against Hoffenheim, and wants to add to the tally but said sometimes his role in the side can make it more hard. However, Jurgen Klopp dropped Can from the starting lineup for their previous Premier League encounter with Newcastle.

"When you are at a club like Liverpool, it is not a club that you want to walk away from".

"The worst I've ever seen him consistently was at Anfield if we were losing at half-time or at the end of the game".

United have started off the season in sparkling form and now sit second place in the league, level with rivals Manchester City on 22 points after just seven games.

Liverpool will resume their league campaign with a clash against arch rivals Manchester United at Anfield.

"That is what has happened to Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester United".

Their form has allowed them to emerge as early frontrunners in the title race alongside Manchester City and Mourinho will be looking to maintain their run at Liverpool on Saturday. "It's not just a Liverpool problem". If a defender misses three tackles he's off so it's no wonder they are cautious.

However, Can's long-term future at Anfield is in serious doubt as his contract is set to expire at the end of this season and he's struggling to agree terms over an extension despite lengthy talks with the club.

Dalglish's values are the embodiment of "The Liverpool Way", the ethos of Liverpool FC - and it is for this reason the club have moved to honour him in this way.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request in a bid to force Klopp to sell him before the transfer deadline, but even when Barca's bids climbed over £100 million (B4.42 billion), Liverpool refused to budge. "He has been fantastic", Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson said.
