EMRE CAN’S imminent departure from Liverpool could see the club land Sami Khedira from Juventus.
The Reds’ current German midfielder looks set to leave at the end of the season when his contract runs out — and the Bianconeri have been long-term admirers.
Juventus have been in discussions with Can, 24, for several months, though nothing has been agreed as yet.
However, during negotiations, Liverpool were alerted to the potential availability of Khedira.
The German joined Juventus in 2015, having won a La Liga and Champions League medal with Real Madrid.
In Italy, he has added two Serie A titles, with another imminent — and recently admitted England is the only major footballing nation he is yet to triumph in.
He told Sport Bild: “I’m not thinking about my future right now, but one day I would like to win the Premier League. I only have one year left on my contract here and will be 32 next year.”
Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has often accommodated his players’ needs when they decide they want to leave Juventus.
Fernando Llorente, Carlos Tevez and Paul Pogba have all left in recent seasons, despite the club preferring to keep them.
Khedira could be a suitable for replacement for Can and would be keen to work with compatriot Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.
