Liverpool key player agrees £100,000-a-wk deal to quit Anfield - report

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can will join Juventus in the summer transfer window after agreeing a five-year deal with the Serie A giants, according to a report.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta Della Sport claims on their website that Can, 24, will sign off an a deal worth £100,000-a-week with Juventus after being convinced to join them over Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich,

It is understood that Juve have offered the Germany international a key role at the Allianz Stadium after he failed to agree a new deal at Anfield.

Can is now due to end a four-year stint on Merseyside in which he has been a key player for Liverpool, appearing 166 times across all competitions and scoring 14 goals.

Football Insider verdict

Can has been a great servant for Liverpool over the past few years but it’s a massive shame that he will be leaving on a free transfer when he is clearly a player who has major value in the transfer market. The German will be a great signing for Juventus and will slot into their midfield which has been crying out for an improvement since Paul Pogba joined Manchester United. Agreeing a deal with Juve at this early stage could mean that fans won’t see him play again for the Reds, given his injury woes and the fact that Jurgen Klopp may want players who are fully committed to play out the campaign.
