The Germany international’s contract runs out at the end of the current season, and negotiations between his camp and the club have been fractious to say the least, with Serie A giants Juventus widely reported to be interested.
As we’ve told you previously, Liverpool supporters have been very vocal on social media about their desire to see Can sign a new deal, but today’s launch of the club’s new ‘Red Pepper’ home kit seems to have left a lot of supporters pretty certain that he’ll be leaving Anfield rather than putting pen-to-paper.
The 24-year-old was conspicuous by his absence – and his omission from the glossy photos has caused quite a stir on social media:
Kit promo and Emre Can is nowhere to be seen. Deffo off then.

No Emre Can for the new home kit launch can only mean one thing. He’s the one who’s been behind the Crazy Sandra account this whole time 😔

Any pics of Emre Can in the new kit

Emre Can not in the promo kits, is he? Worst kept secret in football. He'll be starting for Juventus and still telling the media he hasn't decided whether hell renew.

Emre Can nowhere to be seen in the new kit launch pics. As good as gone #LFC

No Emre Can in any of the Kit promos. It’s becoming more and more obvious isn’t it?

So Emre Can leaving? Not featured in new kit release

Do you think there’s any chance Can will still be a Liverpool player next season?
And how much will they miss him if he does leave?
