- Germany international Emre Can is close to sealing a four year deal with Juventus
- The 24-year-old is said to undergo medicals in Turin sometime this week before completing the deal
- His deal with Liverpool runs out at the end of this month after spending the last three seasons at Anfield
Germany international Emre Can has reportedly agreed to join Italian Serie A champions Juventus on a four year contract from Liverpool.
The 24-year-old is expected to undergo medicals in Turin before sealing the deal and being unveiled to the club’s fans when the summer transfer window opens.
Can who won the FIFA Confederation Cup with his country in Russia last year ran out of contract with the Reds at the end of the 2017-18 league season and the club failed to offer him an extension.
The midfielder joined the Anfield side in 2014 in a deal valued at £10.80 million and he scored 11 goals in over 110 matches for the Premier League side.
He was also in the team that reached the finals of both Europa League and the Champions League finals in the last three years under Jurgen Klopp, but failed to win either at the end of the games.
The German star has been linked with a move to join the Old Lady all through last season due to his side not offering him a new contract.
While a few other top clubs in Europe showed interest in signing the German, meanwhile the Italian giants were confident of landing a deal according to the club CEO Beppe Marotta.
“We are optimistic about the positive end of negotiations with Emre Can,” he told Mediaset Premium at the time. “We hope to announce his signing after the Champions League final.”
He started his career at Bayern Munich youth team in 2011 and made his senior debut with the club’s main team in 2012.
Can scored one goal in four appearances before joining Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2013 and then scored three goals in 29 games.
Previously, NAIJ.com reported that Liverpool star Emre Can has reportedly agreed £85k-a-week five-year deal with Juventus and will be announced after Liverpool’s Champions League final clash with Real Madrid.
The 24 year old is out of contract and and the German midfielder is said to have rejected the offer of an extension.
According to the report by Goal, the move could finally be confirmed within the next fortnight after Liverpool’s showdown with Real Madrid in Kiev.
