According to an exclusive report from the Daily Mirror, Juventus have told Emre Can he is surplus to requirements in Turin and Everton are an interested party.
It seems that the 26-year-old midfielder could be on his way out of the Allianz Stadium and the Bianconeri would like to ship him off to a serious bidder.
Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly one of the interested parties – alongside Inter Milan – and Everton are lining up a bid of around £30m to land their target as the Toffees look to bolster their squad.
Call yourself an Everton expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?
Can is also said to be on £100,000-a-week, per the same report, which is what made the likes of Nerazzurri ultimately back off.
It remains to be seen, however, if his history at Liverpool ends up being a dealbreaker.
At this very moment, Maurizio Sarri has more than just a packed midfield.
Juventus have a total of seven midfielders at their disposal, including Can in that equation, and it doesn’t really come as a surprise that the German has been starved of any minutes with the likes of Miralem Pjanic, Sami Khedira and Blaise Matuidi all residing in the squad.
For that reason, he’s only managed to feature in 279 minutes across eight Serie A games in the ongoing campaign and there’s no obvious sign that his situation will change in the near future.
Of course, an ex-Liverpool player arriving at Goodison Park would be a sensational and highly controversial move but that doesn’t mean it’s completely impossible.
The Daily Mirror also mention that Ancelotti tried signing the player during the summer as well, while he was still at Napoli, but the asking price was too high.
Let’s see if he can land his man this time around.
