Right, latest conspiracy theory. Wiji's played deep a fair bit in pre-season. With Couts coming into midfield likely taking his position is Klopp training Wiji to play deeper to be the back up to Hendo? Is it a sign that Klopp's planning for life without Can?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Do you believe that Can will be sold Ed? I hope not, he will be some player.

{Ed001's Note - he hasn't signed his new contract, so he will have to go.}

25 Jul 2017 08:59:37
A great pity - is there any indication as to why he hasn't signed? Is this a money thing or does he just fancy playing in a different league?

{Ed001's Note - game time mainly, he wants to be first choice and win trophies, he will get both those with Juventus. Plus he won't have to put up with shedloads of abuse when playing through injury, like he did with us....}

25 Jul 2017 09:14:01
Thanks Ed, I hadn't expected quite such a definitive answer. If I could trouble you for a follow up I would expect that if Can leaves we'd want to bring in another midfielder. Would that be Keita (if we could get him) or would it be an squad player (such as A O-C)?

{Ed001's Note - Keita.}

25 Jul 2017 09:19:53
Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

25 Jul 2017 09:44:50
Will Can be first choice for Juventus? I'm surprised by that to be hoenst.

{Ed001's Note - yes and why surprised? He is an excellent player.}

25 Jul 2017 10:20:08
Has Klopp refused to give him assurances over game time then Ed1?
Also, is there a plan B to Keita because it's seems apparent that he's not coming.
Thanks Ed1.

{Ed001's Note - last season showed him that he is not first choice.}

25 Jul 2017 10:24:59
Thanks Ed1. That's a shame. I think he'd probably have forced himself into the first team with his performances over the last few months.

{Ed001's Note - me too.}

25 Jul 2017 10:28:32
So that's can gone then 😔
Didn't think this was how the transfer window was going to pan out.

25 Jul 2017 10:39:11
Have to say I'd be a bit gutted if Can goes. There is fierce competition in our midfield mind you, so maybe understandable from his view point, but am still gutted none the less. Let's hope for a decent fee I suppose.

25 Jul 2017 10:40:42
Ed, I know you're probably sick of hearing the name Keith but please would you give me your gut feeling in this: come the end of the transfer window do you see him at Liverpool?

{Ed001's Note - well Penelope does like her seat in the Kop, so she could well be there.}

25 Jul 2017 10:51:56
Can is a very good player who played through injury to help get us top 4 and there was nothing but abuse raining on him for doing something that many other players would never do. He was awesome for us down the stretch and I will be sad to see him go.

25 Jul 2017 11:07:56
Good one ed. that's auto-correct at play. I meant your gut feeling over Keita signing?

{Ed001's Note - my gut feeling is that I probably should not have eaten so much spicey food last night. I don't have one about Keita one way or the other to be honest. I know he wants to join and we want him, but I also know RBL are not in the slightest bit ready to sell.}

25 Jul 2017 11:21:30
Cans more than replaceable.

25 Jul 2017 12:00:40
I do think Can is excellent, and would be gutted if he left ed001, but not sure he would be guaranteed a starting berth with pjanic, kedhira, marchisio etc, when he is not even a definite starter for us!

{Ed001's Note - I don't rate any of those players personally. Pjanic could be good, but he usually goes missing and Khedira I just don't get the deal with him.}

25 Jul 2017 12:12:00
I am not being critically at all of Can by any means. But he will not be hard to replace. In and outbof our team for several seasons. No real impact. He is technically average. Nearly 2500 mins of footy last season.5 goals and 2 assists. Goes missing a lot and does give the ball away a fair bit. Good luck to the guy. I know he's 23 but he's been around a while. Think grujic has more potential and should be given a shot.

25 Jul 2017 12:18:43
We will regret this so so badly, he's miles better at CM than Wijnaldum and Lallana and I have no qualms about saying it plus he's one of the only physical players we have. So disappointed.

25 Jul 2017 12:24:44
Players come, players go.
I can't get worked up about it to be honest.
Good luck to Emre, great pro, no shortage of effort.
Will get a cracking welcome if he ever comes back to LFC
