Emre Can agrees Juventus deal

Liverpool’s Emre Can is out of contract this summer, and after a long and wearying transfer saga, he has agreed a four-year deal to play for Juventus, according to Sky Sports quoting their sources in Italy.

The German signed for Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen in 2014, and he has been a highly useful player for both Brendan Rodgers and current manager Jürgen Klopp. He’s a highly versatile, combative midfielder who has also performed well in defence, and during several spells of injury to captain Jordan Henderson he was a very important part of the team.

However, he has never managed to make a position in the starting XI his own, and after he sought a buyout clause to be inserted into any new deal with the Merseyside club (something Liverpool don’t do these days), the negotiations broke down and he has decided to leave.

He’s been heavily linked with Juventus since last summer, and now it seems the move is imminent.
