Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has reportedly agreed five year deal with Juventus ahead of a summer move.

Emre Can has been free to speak with foreign clubs after the winter transfer window due to his contract expiring after the end of the season. However, Liverpool remained hopeful that German international would remain at Anfield.

The deal, which will see the former Leverkusen star earns €6m (£5.3m) per season in Turin, will reportedly be announced after the Wednesday Champions League game against AS Roma.

Can has been with the Reds since 2014, making 166 appearances for the club and managed to found back of the net 14 times.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have announced that Brazil international forward Roberto Firmino has signed a new long-term deal with the Anfield club.

The 26-year-old forward has joined the Reds from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim during the summer transfer window of 2015 and has made 140 appearances where he managed to found back of the net for 50 times.

Former Hoffenheim star, whose existing deal ran until 2020, has been rewarded with a new bumper deal after scoring 27 goals for Liverpool this campaign helping them to reach the Champions League semi-final and finish the season on top-four.
