Juventus set to repeat their favourite trick and land Liverpool star nearing end of contract

Germany international out of contract at Anfield next summer and is able to agree free switch in next transfer window

Juventus are set to repeat their favourite trick.

The Old Lady love nothing more than sniffing around players who are nearing the end of their contracts and swooping in.

Their latest target for this ploy is none other than Emre Can.


Juve have confirmed they will move for the Germany international in January

Emre Can has improved immeasurably in the last year

The Germany international has become a key cog in Jurgen Klopp’s system over the past year.

But Can’s contract expires in the summer of 2018 and there’s been no indication that he’s set to sign a new one.

That’s led to a number of admiring glances from across Europe, with the prospect of signing a young international midfielder for nothing surely too good to ignore.

Juventus are believed to be in pole position, with some reports going so far to claim they’ve already won the race for his signature.

And although an attempt to sign Can this summer was rebuffed by Liverpool, Juventus are adamant they will continue their pursuit in the next window or the one after.

Can is out of contract next summer and is yet to agree a new deal

“Don’t leave me”

Turin chief Beppe Marotta told Premium Sport via Talksport: “Liverpool are holding on tight to Emre Can.

“His contract expires in June. We’ll be able to negotiate with him from January. We won’t hide the fact we like him.

“But currently he is a Liverpool player, so we can only admire him from afar.”

Can was immense in Liverpool’s thrashing of Arsenal at the weekend and has become one of the first names of Klopp’s teamsheet.

Juve have just signed French ace Blaise Matuidi from PSG

Juve seemingly not content with signing Blaise Matuidi

Juventus famously signed Andrea Pirlo on a free after Milan chose not to renew the cultured midfielder’s contract.

Pirlo then went on to be a key figure in four consecutive title wins.

Fancy a bit of that, Emre? Of course you do.
