Juventus Tell Emre Can He Is Not Needed

Calcio Mercato

Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich could reportedly make a late swoop for Emre Can after Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri told the midfielder he is not needed.

Following the summer arrivals of both Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot, Juventus now have seven senior midfielders, and it is widely expected that at least one will be sold before the summer transfer window closes.

Juventus have tried to offload both Sami Khedira and Blaise Matuidi, but have failed to find any sides capable of lodging acceptable offers for either player, so they have been forced to try and sell another player.

With the European transfer window due to close on September 2, Can will be sacrificed instead, as he is the easiest of the surplus midfielders to sell.

According to Tuttosport and Calciomercato.it, both Bayern and PSG have both made enquiries for the Germany international, who only arrived for Liverpool on a free transfer last summer. Both of these clubs were linked with Can before he joined Juventus.

The 25-year-old marked his debut campaign in Turin with 37 appearances, four goals, an assist and a Scudetto.

Juventus have spent heavily this summer signing Merih Demiral, Luca Pellegrini, Danilo, Matthijs de Ligt and bringing back Gianluigi Buffon.

Selling Can would add a useful sum to their transfer budget, and it is believed that that is one of the most important things for Juventus officials this month.

Juventus kick-off their 2019-20 season with a visit to Parma on Saturday evening.
