The German international, who has impressed in recent weeks, revealed earlier this month his agent was still in negotiations with Liverpool about a new deal.

Marotta told Italian broadcaster Premium Sport: "The interest is clear. We want to try and bring him to us, but we cannot do it because he currently has a contract with Liverpool.

"He could renew it and, moreover, there are other teams interested in him."

The Serie A side have been linked with Can since the summer, but have so far failed to convince the 24-year-old to agree to a contract.

Marotta added: "We want to try and bring him to Turin. I am stating this with full awareness that he might not arrive, but we need to have important objectives."

Can has grown in importance to ’s side this season, with his form calling on the club to look for a quick resolution before the summer - when he is able to leave for free.
