Liverpool confirm Emre Can exit as German midfielder prepares to join Juventus

The Germany worldwide joined from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2014 and made 167 appearances for the club, the last of which came as a substitute in the recent Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid.

However, the Liverpool Echo report that the problems are not detrimental to the deal, easing fears that the Anfield outfit could pull out.

Can was signed by Brendan Rodgers and made his 167th and final appearance for Liverpool in last month's Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid.

Goal.com believe the midfielder has agreed a four-year deal with the Italian giants.

The club released their list of retained players for the 2018/19 season on Friday, and in doing so confirmed the departures of both Emre Can and Jon Flanagan.


Flanagan is an academy graduate who made his debut in 2011 against Manchester City.

It feels as if Emre Can's exit from Liverpool has been coming since literally day one of the 2017/18 Premier League season and frankly, I stopped caring about this saga long ago.

But injuries sidetracked his career afterward, and he has since featured in just 11 Premier League games for the Reds.

Speculation about a move to the Serie A club intensified in the second half of the season and Turin now seems a likely destination for the midfielder.

There was, however, better news for Irish defender Conor Masterson.
