Juventus club legend Alessandro Del Piero has said that Liverpool’s Emre Can would be the perfect addition to his former club.
Can’s current deal with the Reds is set to expire at the end of the season and he has yet to sign a new deal at Anfield which has led to speculation that he could leave the club amid interest from Manchester City and Juventus.
A pre contract agreement could be reached in January while Liverpool could also look to cash in if they sell during that time. Del Piero feels that Juventus should push to sign Can as they are in need of greater squad depth.
The Bianconeri legend told Sky Sport Italia: “[Massimiliano] Allegri’s side needs another midfielder because [Sami] Khedira is known to pick up minor knocks.
“[Claudio] Marchisio is coming back from injury, but he’s still not at his best and [Miralem] Pjanic is not such a physical player.
“Emre Can of Liverpool would be ideal, and he’s not even that expensive. He could be the big name for Juve in January. They need somebody like him. He’s physically present and somebody like Emre Can would fit in very well with Pjanic and Khedira.”
