Liverpool transfer news: Coutinho can leave in January, Juventus want Can and more, 28th December 2017
Emre Can heading to Turin?
Emre Can is in the last 6 months of his contract at Liverpool. He is free to agree on pre-contract with anyone in January. So Liverpool might want to cash in on him instead of letting him go for free in January.
According to the Tuttosport, Juventus are interested in buying the German midfielder. The Turin-based club is willing to send Croatian winger Marko Pjaca on loan in a part exchange deal for Emre Can. Jurgen Klopp is still hoping that Can agrees to sign an extension but if he does not, Liverpool will definitely like to get something for their asset.
