Juventus have reached an agreement with Emre Can to sign him on a free transfer in the summer.
The 23-year-old midfielder has failed to agree terms on a new contract with Liverpool and looks set to make the switch to Serie A in the summer providing he has inked a pre-contract agreement with the Italians. As yet there has been no official confirmation from Anfield that Juventus have secured his signature.
Can has always insisted that the decision not to sign a new deal with Liverpool was not about money. Anfield insiders have continually stated that the club’s refusal to include an escape clause in a new deal was the only stumbling block.
Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp had hoped an agreement would eventually be reached while Can commented recently that he could still extend his stay.
If Can has not yet inked any paperwork that commits him to the move, we expect Liverpool to continue to try and persuade him to stay.
Although we believe that an agreement has definitely been reached between Juventus and the player, we don’t know whether or not anything has actually been inked and set in stone, so until we see an official statement from either club we would advise a little caution.
