When imagining which players from Premier League giants Liverpool will be in demand during the January transfer window, the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah spring to mind.

Interestingly however one of the biggest rumours this week surrounds midfielder Emre Can, who, according to the Express, will be making the switch to Italian super club Juventus in the new year.

Can has become an integral part of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool midfield, having featured 15 times already in the Premier League this season. As a box to box midfielder, the German delivers both goals and assists, as well as breaking up play and starting attacks.

The Old Lady are looking to capitalise on the fact that the midfielder’s contract negotiations are still ongoing, and his addition to their already stacked squad would help them continue their Serie A title defence.

Juventus currently sit just one point behind leaders Napoli, and the right moves in January will likely ensure that they can secure yet another league title. The Italian side are likely to offer around £5m to bring the German in during the January window, rather than risking waiting until the summer to grab him for free.
