German international midfielder fears for his place at Euro 2020

Emre Can news

German international midfielder Emre Can has asked for crisis talks with Juventus as fears grow that his participation at Euro 2020 could now be at risk.

The 26-year-old has been frozen out of the starting XI at the Allianz Stadium by coach Maurizio Sarri, who didn’t even include the player in his squad for Wednesday night’s Coppa Italia clash against Udinese.

German national team boss Joachim Low has stated that he will only select players who are playing regular for their clubs for the big summer tournament and Can knows that time is now running out for him to figure in his country’s plans.

Can arrived in Turin on a free-transfer from Liverpool in the summer of 2018 and has a contract at Juventus until 2022. Gazzetta dello Sport writes that Bianconeri sporting director Fabio Paratici has no problem with the player’s intention of leaving, but he wants a clearer picture of just what he intends to do moving forward.
