Liverpool reportedly could lose star midfielder for just £18million

As per Transfermarketweb, Liverpool risk losing German midfielder Emre Can for about half the £36million asking price slammed on him to Juventus, as he has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Bianconeri.

The 23-year-old emerged Juve’s most desired midfield target, as they also had the likes of Steven N’Zonzi, Blaise Matuidi and André Gomes on their list.

It was reported that their officials arrived Liverpool earlier during the week to seal a deal for their man.

Can, 23, stalled on signing a contract extension with only a year left on his deal, and his reported exit will definitely be a blow on Liverpool.

The Reds couldn’t promise him a starting berth in their star-studded midfield, and they are now likely to be forced to make an addition to their ranks.

Can, primarily a defensive midfield has also been deployed at centre-back and full-back.

From the look of things, his 3-season Liverpool career is coming to an end this summer.

At least, the Reds would be making profit if they end up selling him for £18million+: double the £9.75million he arrived for from Bayer Leverkusen.
