Italian champions Juventus are expected to announce the signing of Emre Can from Liverpool after the Champions League final.

The Germany international midfielder had been offered new terms by Liverpool but they have refused to include a buyout clause in any contract proposals.

Juve chief executive Beppe Morata told Italian TV: “I am confident we will be able to announce Emre Can after the Champions League final.”

Can is part of the Liverpool squad that have flown out to Marbella as they enjoy some warm-weather training ahead of the Champions League final next weekend.

The German international has not made a first-team appearance since picking up a back injury in the win over Watford in March.

He remains an outside bet to feature in Kiev against Real Madrid next Saturday, but his recovery has not come swift enough for the World Cup.
