Can started Liverpool’s match against Watford last weekend but the 24-year-old was substituted in the 27th minute and replaced with James Milner before the Reds went on to win 5-0.
Despite Can struggling with back problems at Anfield, Joachim Low named the midfielder in his Germany squad for their friendlies against Spain and Brazil.
However, Can was forced to leave training on Wednesday after only 15 minutes of the session.
It’s understood his back injury was still causing him problems in Dusseldorf ahead of Germany’s clash with Spain on Friday evening.

Jurgen Klopp played down Emre Can’s injury (Picture: Getty)Asked about Can’s injury after the defeat of Watford, Jurgen Klopp said: ‘He doesn’t think, and I don’t think, it is too serious – but it was too serious to continue,
‘He had that problem a little bit during the week; we gave him one day of extra recovery but he thought it would work and he trained normally yesterday.
‘It is a muscle thing but it should not be that serious.
‘He will go to the national team I think, and have their treatment.’
