Italian media claim Emre Can has agreed a five-year contract with Juventus

The long-running saga over Emre Can‘s future might be resolved soon—but it’s not the best news for the Reds as he could be off to Serie A.

The central midfielder has been absent for much of the season run-in, since injuring his back against Watford in March.

His injury flared up again during the international break soon after and he has since missed the games against Man City and Roma in Europe, as well as five Premier League fixtures.

During that time speculation has largely quietened over his future, but now reports in Italy claim Can’s mind is made up—and he’s off to Juventus.

Gazzetta report that Can has finally decided on the Bianconeri ahead of Bayern Munich or Paris Saint-Germain, though there had been hope he might even renew at Anfield.

A five-year deal is on the table for the German and the report claims he has agreed terms worth between €5-6 million per season.

The report further suggests only a few details need finalising, with the midfielder ready to sign and commit his future to Juve.

Can has played 166 times for the Reds since signing in 2014, scoring 14 goals along the way.
