The outgoing deals rumours continue to circle around Anfield, with news that Emre Can is in “advanced talks” with Juventus over a free transfer in the summer.
German midfielder Can has been in and out of the side this term but still plays a valuable role for Jurgen Klopp, as both a holder and a more advanced rampaging option.
Out of contract at the end of the season though, there have been constant suggestions that Can would look to secure a free transfer in summer.
And it seems Juventus will be the team to snare him for next season, report Sky Sports.
Can is said to be in “advanced talks” over a summer move, with Sky’s German counterparts suggesting a January move away is not an option.
The midfielder has played over 150 times for the Reds since signing from Bayer Leverkusen, developing into a well-rounded—if at-times inconsistent—midfielder, with great versatility to his game.
His departure would be a loss for the squad, even if he isn’t a guaranteed name on the team-sheet, and losing him for free only makes matters worse.
There remains some small hope that Can might opt to sign a new deal with the Reds, particularly if the remainder of the campaign is a success, but it seems more likely now than ever that Liverpool’s midfield will need a significant restructure for 2018/19.
The Guardian further report that Can has been offered a five-year deal by Juventus, worth around £85,000 per week.
In addition, the midfielder would receive a sizeable signing-on fee.
