Liverpool are ready to offer Emre Can a new big money deal to fend off the advances of Italian giants Juventus.

The German midfielder is set be offered £100,000-a-week which would also see him tied to Anfield until 2021.

Can's current deal expires in 2018 and Jurgen Klopp is desperate to tie down the all-action midfielder for the foreseeable future, according to Tutto Mercato.

Juve are known to be in the market for a central midfielder and have already missed out on their primary target, Lyon's Corentin Tolisso, who joined Bayern Munich for £35m.

The Old Lady are also said to be keen on Sevilla's Steven N'Zonzi but are reportedly baulking at the Spanish club's €40m valuation of the 28-year-old Frenchman.

Can, who is 23-years-old, would represent a shrewder investment with the former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder enjoying a fantastic end to the season with Liverpool.

In the absence of Jordan Henderson, the German international thrived as the team's anchoring midfielder, helping them qualify for the Champions League in the process.

Capable of playing at right-back or as a central defender, Can's versatility would be perfect for Juve but Klopp is clearly aware that he must maintain his services.

The proposed contract would see him become one of Liverpool's highest-paid players, just £50,000 short a week of their highest earner Philippe Coutinho.

Can is set to play a major role for Germany in the upcoming Confederations Cup in Russia. Joachim Low has opted for a young team with Julian Draxler as captain and the Liverpool man should get a chance to shine.
