Klopp optimistic about new Can contract

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is optimistic that midfielder Emre Can will commit himself to a new contract with the club.

The German international had a poor start to the season as a result of injury problems, but is back to his best, as he showed with the spectacular winner he scored against Watford on Monday.

The 23-year-old only has a year left on his current deal, but Klopp believes he will put pen to paper on a new contract soon.

“After his bicycle kick probably everyone wants him to stay,” said Klopp, according to the Telegraph.

“I think it is no secret how much I like Emre. He likes the club and that is a completely normal situation.

"We are in talks and there is absolutely no pressure, it is all good. It is two partners with big respect for each other. If we can keep good players that makes sense for development and he is one of these good players. I am quite positive."
