Liverpool star Emre Can looks like he will be leaving Anfield after the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
The midfielder of Turkish origin will be a free agent unless he signs a contract extension.
The fact that he has let things get to this stage perhaps indicates he will not be staying on and if reports in Italy are to be believed he is nearing a move to Juventus.
Who will Liverpool sign as his replacement? well Naby Keita is on his way from Red Bull Leipzig but former Reds defender David Thompson through in a surprise name.
Thompson tweeted he has heard none other than Yaya Toure will be signed on a free transfer as Can’s replacement.
Hearing reports we are signed YAYA Toure on a free as replacement for Emre Can makes sense #lfc

Liverpool fans did not seem very convinced with the claims being made and to be fair it does seem far-fetched unless he was being signed to add depth to the midfield perhaps.
How’s it make sense cause they both turn like a bus?

Somehow this transfer does not look all that likely. Would you want Toure as Can’s replacement?
