Liverpool midfielder Emre Can celebrates

Juventus are set to confirm the signing of Liverpool midfielder Emre Can after the Champions League final, according to reports in Italy.

The German star, 24, has long been linked with a switch to the Serie A giants but now the talk is set end with a deal possibly being announced on May 27, a day after the Reds take on Real Madrid in Kiev.

The free transfer move comes following months of speculation, with Bayern Munich and Manchester City also interested in the versatile star who has spent four years at Anfield, making 110 Premier League appearances.

On the subject of Can’s deal, manager Jurgen Klopp said this week: “There is no news, good or bad about his contract. We are still negotiating. If he accepted something, you would know everything like before.”

But now it appears he will seal a five-year contract in Italy once the Champions League final is played.
