While the growing buzz out of Liverpool is that the club have become resigned to losing Can and do not expect to sign the 23-year-old German global to a new deal, for their part, Schalke continue to insist that they believe there is a chance of convincing Goretzka to put pen to paper on a new long-term deal. "We remain in the race", Heidel told Kicker.
"It's not easy, and when you have to sign a player for Juventus". "I don't hide the fact we are following them both, but so too are many other teams".
Juventus seem to be the frontrunners to sign Can, but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is still hoping his compatriot will commit his future to Anfield.
The Reds were reported to agreed a deal to sign the Germany midfielder in January, however, Schalke director Christian Heidel claims that Goretzka's departure from the Veltins-Arena is not certain.
