Manchester United and Chelsea are among the clubs interested in signing Emre Can from Liverpool, according to reports in Italy.

Italian outlet Tuttosport, as quoted by the Sun, is reporting that the Premier League duo are considering moves for the Germany international, who is out of contract at Anfield at the end of the season.

The same report says that Juventus are another club potentially keen on signing Can as his contract stand-off with Liverpool continues.

The story also claims that Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are also keen on signing Can if he cannot find an agreement with Liverpool over a new contract.

However, the article says that Liverpool are still “hopeful” of being able to convince Can to sign a new contract and commit his future to the Merseyside outfit.

Despite that, the same story says that Juventus look to be the leading contenders to sign Can, with the Italian club potentially able to sign him to a pre-contract agreement in January.

Liverpool take on Manchester City in the Premier League at The Etihad on Saturday lunchtime.
