Markovic free to leave Liverpool, says Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is optimistic that Emre Can will stay at the club after “good contract talks” were held with the midfielder.”That means they’re not the worst talks but until anything is done or signed there’s nothing to say“.In the summer of 2014, Markovic arrived at Anfield from Benfica for £20million as a very promising player, but hasn’t been able to live up to expectations since.”Emre is certainly one of them”.Italian newspaper Tuttosport claim Juventus will offer £31million for the Germany global. “We want to keep him and we’re having good talks”.Klopp will ease Can back into his side, with the Reds’ next clash coming away to Hertha Berlin on July 29, before taking part in the Audi Cup at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena.”Emre will be training with the group who are at Melwood this weekend”, Klopp said.”All the boys will be back in on Tuesday”.However, unlike the situation of Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal, the Italian newspaper claim that were there to be complete breakdown in the talks between the Reds and their midfielder, they may decide to sell than see him go on a free. “He will be 100 percent involved”. “It was like this a year ago too”, Klopp told the Liverpool Echo. Liverpool’s recent purchase of Mohamed Salah signalled Markovic’s career at Anfield had ended, with the Serbia global making 34 appearances in all competitions during his 2014-15 sole season at the club, scoring three times. I like him as a person. “There will be a club out there who needs him”.
