Emre Can to decide Liverpool future at the end of the season
Last Updated: 08/03/18 9:04am
Liverpool midfielder Emre Can says he has "blocked all negotiations" over his future until the end of the season in order to focus on his football.
Can is out of contract in the summer and has been widely linked with a free transfer to Serie A champions Juventus.
The 24-year-old is eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club but insists he has yet to decide his future and could remain at Liverpool for next season.
"Of course I have to think about my footballing future," Can told the Liverpool Echo. "I haven't signed for any other club, I'm just focused on this season. We want to finish in second place in the Premier League, we're in the Champions League quarter-finals and we want to progress. That's all I'm focused on now.
"My agent has blocked all negotiations, I'm thinking only of football."
Liverpool progressed to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday following a 5-0 aggregate win over Porto.
The Reds could face Can's potential suitors Juventus in the next round but the Germany international insists he isn't concerned who Liverpool draw.
"Let's see who we will get in the quarter-finals," he said. "We did our job and we are through the round. I prefer to not play an English team, but I don't care who."
