Can coped well with being played out of position in defence last season and showed great versatility in adapting to a centre-back and full-back role.
“It can be a disadvantage, but it can help a young player as well,” Can was quoted as saying by 11Freunde.
“I want to play as much as possible.
“At the moment I am content, but I’ll be playing my best position soon, which is central midfield. The coach knows about it and sees it the same way I do.”
The 21-year-old has been used in his preferred role for the U21 Germany national side.
Can scored in the U21 Germany national team’s 1-1 draw against Serbia U21s in the U21 Euro Championships on Wednesday 17 June.
Germany drew their opening game against Serbia 1-1 and take on Group A leaders Denmark next. The Liverpool youngster is expected to start again against the Danes.
The German U21 national team are currently second in Group A on one point alongside third placed Serbia.
