Borussia Dortmund want to extend Emre Can’s contract, and talks between the two parties are said to be progressing well.

Emre Can’s future was brought into question earlier this month, as reports claimed that Borussia Dortmund are willing to listen to offers for the midfielder. But now it appears that the BVB bosses want to extend Can’s contract, which is currently set to expire at the end of next season.

According to Sky Sport, talks between the two parties are progressing well and a contract extension appears to be the likeliest outcome. WAZ reported on Monday that Borussia Dortmund would like to offer Can a new 2-3 year contract that would see him take a small pay cut.

Galatasaray have also been linked with a move for Can, who said earlier this month that he feels comfortable at Borussia Dortmund.

Emre Can found his best form in BVB colours in the second half of the recently concluded season. The former Liverpool and Juventus player’s impressive form also helped him earn a recall to the Germany squad, and he has now established himself as an important part of Hansi Flick’s plans ahead of next year’s European Championships.

With Borussia Dortmund looking to sign Edson Álvarez and Felix Nmecha to bolster their midfield, it will be interesting to see what role Can plays in Edin Terzic’s plans for next season. The versatile midfielder could also be in line for a spot in the team’s leadership council next season following the departure of Jude Bellingham.
