The Liverpool Echo describe Emre Can’s future at Liverpool as ‘uncertain’ as his contract expires next year.
Talks between the German midfielder and the club began six months ago but they are yet to find a solution.
Emre Can stalling on a new deal like it's a forward pass.

Speaking to the Echo in November, Can said: “Yes, the club have spoken to my agent.
“The talks are going very good. I have one-and-a-half years left. I am still under contract and it is my agent’s work (to sort it out). I am very happy here at Liverpool.”
The local newspaper says that the club’s priority, after tying down Philippe Coutinho to a new long-term contract, is to do the same with Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren.
The Saints pair are both contracted to Liverpool until 2019 but will be rewarded for their excellent form with extensions.
