EMRE CAN HAS completed his switch from Liverpool to Juventus on a four-year deal.

Can joined Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen in 2014 and made 167 appearances — the last of which came in last month’s 3-1 Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid.

Juventus have long been linked with the 24-year-old defensive midfielder and after undergoing a medical today, has put pen-to-paper on a deal which will see him join the club officially on 1 July.

“Juventus Football Club announces that a contract of employment with the player Emre Can, effective as of 1st July 2018 and expiring on 30 June 2022, has been signed,” a statement read.

“As a result of the signature of the agreement, Juventus will incur additional costs of € 16 million, to be paid over the next two financial years.”

The acquisition of the German on a free transfer is a significant coup for Juventus, with Can turning down a contract renewal at Anfield to head to Italy.

Liverpool have already moved to bolster their central midfield options, with Fabinho arriving from Monaco for £43.6 million, while Naby Keita will complete his agreed £52.75 million transfer from RB Leipzig on 1 July.
