Liverpool midfielder Emre Can may not stay at Anfield - Jamie Carragher

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has said he is unsure whether Emre Can's long-term future lies at Anfield.

Germany midfielder Can scored the winning goal in Sunday's 2-1 victory over Burnley with a powerful long-range effort.

But he will enter the final 12 months of his contract in the summer, with the Liverpool Echo reporting that negotiations have stalled.

A source has told ESPN FC that Liverpool are keen to agree a new deal for Can.

But the Daily Mirror reported Carragher as saying: "Can's big problem is that I don't think he's a versatile player but he's played in four or five positions for Liverpool.

"The only position I think he can play is the one he played [against Burnley], the sitting midfielder, because he needs legs around him. But Jurgen Klopp is playing Jordan Henderson ahead of him.

"Now, he's got a contract situation at the moment. Is he going to sign it?

"There is a good chance he may not be here next season. I don't see, when the first XI is picked, where else he can play except that role."

Meanwhile, Can said he felt he had marked the end of a difficult spell with a lingering calf problem.

"I know I had a very tough period, I had not too much confidence in the last few weeks and it was not my best performance," he told the club's official website.

"But I had the feeling I would come back, I had the feeling that I was getting strong again.

"I know what I am able to do when I am fit, when I'm pain-free."
