Liverpool have shown in the Champions League particularly this season why they are among the most exciting teams in Europe.

Next season they are going to get even better when Naby Keita joins up, but their squad could be weakened if Emre Can leaves.

Can showed in the win against Manchester City why he is a big asset, although inconsistency has meant this has not been a weekly level of performance.

He is a free agent at the end of the season and has been strongly linked with signing for Juventus.

SkySports reported earlier this year that an agreement in principle has been reached for him to move, but Can has since insisted that no deal has been struck.

Likewise he has not committed his future to Liverpool, and his lack of clear intent is a dangerous game.

According to the Mail, Liverpool are already eyeing a replacement in Napoli midfielder Jorginho.

Can is a key player for Liverpool but he is replaceable.

At Juventus there is just as as much competition for places, with Blaise Matuidi leaving PSG for Turin last summer. It is hard to say joining the Italians would be a bad move in itself, it is just that this Liverpool side have so much to offer.

Liverpool are moving forward in such an exciting direction that Can could be leaving at exactly the wrong time.

He has already shown he is unafraid to make big decisions, leaving Bayern Munich for Bayer Leverkusen earlier in his career.

This time he is already a regular at Liverpool and despite Keita being incoming, Can should try and stay and be a part of Jurgen Klopp's vision for the future.
