Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has agreed personal terms with Serie A champions Juventus according to reports in Italy.
The German international has long been rumoured to be on the way out of the Anfield exit door after failing to agree a new contract with Liverpool. Despite being willing to stay at the club, and the club offering him a new deal, they have continued to refuse to put a buyout clause in his contract, something that the midfielder is demanding.
He has just over seven months remaining on his current deal, and is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club from January onwards.
According to Italian publication Tuttosport, Can has now already agreed personal terms with Juventus. They claim that the deal was not difficult to complete, after already having discussion with the player last summer, before Liverpool refused to sell the 23-year-old.
Juventus will try to tempt Liverpool to sell in January, but the most likely scenario is a summer move on a free transfer.
The midfielder has scored 11 goals in his 145 appearances for the club during his three-and-a-half years in the Premier League.
