PSG enter race for Liverpool star, Juventus eye midfielder & Nemanja Matic as alternative for £35m target

Can would be able to play in central midfield as well as right-back, a position Juve could need to strengthen due to uncertain futures for Lichsteiner and Dani Alves.
Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport meanwhile report that Juve’s transfer priority is Sevilla midfielder Steven N’Zonzi.
Per the source, Sevilla want £35 million [€40m] for the 28-year-old and will not lower their asking price.
As a result Juve are targeting Can and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic as alternatives.
Matic is reportedly keen on a fresh challenge this summer.
The situation is different with Can. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants him to stay but he has just over 12 months remaining on his contract.
“After his bicycle kick probably everyone wants him to stay,” Klopp said in May. “I think it is no secret how much I like Emre.
Tutto Mercato Web claim that the midfielder of Turkish origin is set to put pen-to-paper on a £100,000 a-week deal which will keep him at the club until 2021.
