Juventus testing Liverpool with £23million deadline day bid for midfielder

The 23-year-old has entered the final year of his contract at Anfield but Liverpool have yet to secure a new deal for the midfielder, with negotiations currently at an impasse.

Juventus will make a final bid to sign Emre Can from Liverpool for £23million today.

Can has just over 10 months remaining on his Liverpool contract and is refusing to sign a new deal.

The Reds could lose him on a free transfer next summer, with Juventus his likely destination.

Juve have been public in their interest of Can, with director Beppe Marotta expressing his desire to snap up the German.

The Serie A giants are willing to wait until January to discuss a free transfer with the midfielder at the end of the season.

But Italian newspaper La Stampa claim a final move to sign Can on a permanent deal this summer will be lodged before today’s 11pm transfer deadline.

The reasoning behind this is Claudio Marchisio’s recent injury, which rules the Italian out for a month and leaves a space in Juve’s midfield.

Furthermore, the defending Serie A champions yesterday had a loan offer for Barcelona’s Andre Gomes knocked back by the Catalan club.

Can has started the season in fine form and scored twice in the Champions League playoff second leg defeat of Hoffenheim.

The 23-year-old remains in talks over a new contract at Anfield, but Liverpool could be tempted to cash in, aware that he could walk away for nothing next summer.
