Juventus are reportedly “in pole position” to sign Liverpool midfielder Emre Can on a Bosman free transfer.
Tuttosport cites reports from Istanbul, which claims Can has said ‘yes’ to Juve, the midfielder being of Turkish extract, despite representing Germany at international level.
The newspaper explains the deal is “hot, but not yet completely finalised”, although the ‘excellent’ work of Bianconeri supremos Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici should ensure no repeat of the case that saw Axel Witsel slip through the net.
Furthermore, the Old Lady would have been trying to bring in the former Bayer Leverkusen man for “a year and a half”, while he is said to be ‘intrigued’ by the prospect of playing in Turin.
Tuttosport concludes by expressing confidence that Can will sign a pre-contract next month, without “taking anything for granted.”
