Italian giants ‘locked and loaded’ for Liverpool star, prepared to offer €25m despite reports of contract deal
Liverpool star Emre Can is reported to be nearing a contract extension deal but that has not put off Juventus from plotting a move.
Tuttosport claim that the Italian giants are ‘locked and loaded’ for Can.
In fact that was the exact term written on their front page – translated obviously – over the weekend.
Per the source, Can and Liverpool only have a verbal agreement in place and that he faces a decisive week.
The midfielder of Turkish origin is reported to be considering his options and keeping an open mind about his future.
The Reds are not keen on Juventus negotiating with Can so it will come down to the players will.
The Serie A giants are prepared to offer €25 million for the central midfielder.
Can currently has just 12 months remaining on his contract and has not actually put pen-to-paper on a new deal just yet.
The 23-year-old is currently on holiday in Bodrum, Turkey after being given an extended break.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man was part of the Germany side that won the Confederations Cup this summer.
Can is expected to return to Liverpool for pre-season once his break is over.
