Another transfer out of the “where did this come from” locker.

. Emre Can agrees 4 year deal with Juventus.

Shocking 😱had him down as the loyal type. Good riddance keita is twice the player he is. Think Klopp not too bothered he’s gone.

Decent player with good potential but he had some way to go to being ready to tie down a permanent starting spot, and I was never sure if he was a 6 or an 8 or somewhere in between. Good luck to the lad, hope he does well.

I'm stupefied, astounded, staggered and quite simply flabbergasted by this news. Of all the possible exits, this one is the most unexpected. And to Juventus of all possible teams? Just shows you the unpredictable nature of football. 😉.

Good riddance? Looks like you aren’t the loyal type either! Not sure what he has done to upset you Barnes?

I think Can deserves more respect than Coutinho and Suarez Barnes. He didn't force the move or skip training. He kept his mouth shut and was professional about it. He knew his game time would be less next year and chose to go somewhere where he could get more minutes. Hope he does well.

Agree with Shents, he moved on and so should we. He was a professional and Klopp even mentioned this several times.

He saw out his complete contract and always gave his all (IMO) - seems as loyal as you could ask a play to be nowadays really!

{Ed002's Note - The last thing clubs want is players to see out their contracts.}

I think there's a fair smattering of dripping irony in this thread ;-)

I think the main reason can left was that he knew when klopp had another transfer window that his starting place was most likely gone.

I think we paid 10.5 million or something around that and he has played quite a few positions and number of games since he joined.

I think in overall terms he has paid back his transfer fee and despite the bad games he had he was never bereft of desire to perform and see the club do well.

Cant see how anyone would have a problem with him leaving.

The fact the club aren't getting any money for him is their fault. His contract should have been extended before it got to a year left.

But maybe he wouldn't have signed it even then unless he had the exit clause. But a few seasons back he was starting every game he was fit.

Still it frees up a wage for someone who wouldn't have been in the main starting 11 next season.

Personally id have lallana follow him as quick as posdible. Not sure what they are both on but that should free up about 150k at least.

For me personally I would of loved to have kept him. When he is on his game he is very good but I agree some below par performances also but I think he can only get better.

All the best to him for his future.

Biggest mistake was not selling him last year. When he didn't commit to new deal. It was originally about playing time apparently yet when fit he started almost all the time. It then became apparent he then wanted a clause in contract that club weren't willing to add so he should have been moved on. I said this time last year after he won competition with Germany and never signed new deal on return, he would see out his deal and leave on a free which is his right of course. Hopefully the club will learn from this and if player is nearing last 18month or so of deal and doesn't commit then move them on as harsh as it sounds. I wish him luck as he was 1 of my favourite players, just a pity he's chosen to move on.

He didn’t have to force the move he’s a free agent he can go where he wants. Not a bad player but slows the play down too much so Italy will suit his game. He will be remembered for the great goal he scored and nothing else 👋🏻👋🏻.

Can didn't give his all for us, if he did he would be one of the world's best by now. He has all the ingredients, but application is what let's him down. Losing concentration and focus and being positionally un sound in what is a very structured team is not giving your all in my opinion. Everyone has a role, and certain triggers set shapes in motion. Can simply didn't stay on it for sustained periods.

I think your being slightly harsh mate. There is a difference between giving your all and your concentration levels.

There aren't too many midfielders can's age who are world class.

Some players struggle with concentration and positional awareness. Its not always related to a desire to be an individual rarther than a team player. Sometimes maturity cures the problem and sometimes it just never kicks in.

Gerrard never had great positional awareness.

In can's case i refuse to believe that he simply didn't care. I think its more of a case of him being young and eager. I think the positional awareness will come as he gets older.

If he had such poor concentration and positional awareness perhaps he should not have been playing as a holding midfielder when he did which is hardly his fault.

Im a bit sad to see him go because i quite liked him as a player who i always thought could get better.

He seemed to gain the trait of slowing down and waiting to roll the tackle which he never needed to do. I think he bulked up a bit too much wich cost him a bit in the nimbleness department.

Perhaps it might have been an injury that lost him a bit of spring in his step or a bit of doubt crept into his brain which isn't uncommon and is hard to shift.

Italy is probably league that will suit him better.

Of all the players who have left liverpool over the years can might actually be top of my list of players i would like to see succeed.

He is a player who genuinly loves the game. You can tell that by watching him play.

Sometimes things just naturally run their course.
