Emre Can has demanded to be played in the Liverpool midfield next season.
Boss Brendan Rodgers spent £10m to bring the Germany under-21 star to Anfield from Bayer Leverkusen last summer.
But Can was used as a makeshift central defender and right-back, as Liverpool struggled.
“I’m looking forward to playing in midfield,” he said on the Liverpool website.
“I’ve said it 100 times in the last days.”
