Reports from RAI Sport in Italy suggest Juventus are very close to agreeing a move for Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.

The Bianconeri have faced stiff opposition from both Bayern Munich and Manchester City in the race to sign the player, however the end may be in sight.

RAI Sport report the German international’s agent has held talks with the Bianconeri and Juventus are “very, very, very optimistic” that he will agree a move to Turin.

Can will be a free agent on June 30 and Juventus have been in advanced negotiations with the players representatives for several months.

Juve have offered the player a five-year contract worth €5m per year net and are expecting an answer soon.
