Emre Can will demand weekly wages of £200,000 to sign a new deal at Liverpool FC, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Can wants a significant pay increase if he is to extend his stay at the Anfield club beyond the summer transfer window.

The same report says that Liverpool FC, however, are unlikely to meet those demands, increasing the possibility that he will leave Anfield in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old’s future has been a big source of speculation in recent months as the clock ticks down on his current contract at Anfield.

The story says that there is a “growing sense” that Can will leave Liverpool FC on a free transfer at the end of the season, with Juventus and Manchester City said to be among his admirers.

The article claims that Can has rejected Liverpool FC’s latest offer of a new contract, but that further talks between the club and player are likely to take place before the end of the season.

Can has scored three goals and made four assists in 26 Premier League appearances for Liverpool FC so far this season to help the Reds up to third place in the table.
