Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has arrived in Turin for a medical with Juventus ahead of the completion of his move to the Serie A club.

The German international, who was left out of his country’s squad for this summer’s World Cup in Russia, had been linked with a move away from Anfield all season after rejecting a series of improved contract offers.

He reportedly had offers from other major European sides including his former team Bayern Munich and Barcelona, but Juventus’ interest has always been the firmest.

Can played 167 games for Liverpool during his four year spell at the club, making his final appearance during the Champions League final against Real Madrid last month.

He will be Juventus’ second permanent signing of the summer, after they made Douglas Costa’s loan from Bayern Munich permanent, and will compete with compatriot Sami Khedira and Frenchman Blaise Matuidi for a place in the team.
