Shock Transfer? Euro giants determined to sign 'brilliant' €38m Liverpool star who's unhappy with Klopp

Juventus reportedly remain intent on signing one of Liverpool's central midfielders this summer.

In mid-January, Sky Sports reported:

"Juventus are eyeing a move for Liverpool midfielder Emre Can...and are hopeful the [promise] of regular game-time could lure him to Turin".

Soon after, Italian newspaper Tutto Mercato claimed:

"Can is not satisfied with how Jurgen Klopp is dealing with him, being mainly a substitute for Henderson and Wijnaldum, and might be tempted to join Juve".

Juve have reportedly sent scouts to watch Can several times over the last few weeks, and now, according to Corriere Dello Sport:

* Juve remain determined to sign Can this summer.

* The German is one of the Italian club's top transfer targets.

Juve's interest is (IMO) great news, but I don't see how Can can be 'unhappy' with his game time this season; he's started 16 of Liverpool's last 20 games, and if he's not satisfied with that, then the problem is clear his.

In my view, Can isn't the long-term solution, and I personally hope Klopp cashes-in at the end of the season (I've given detailed reasons for this thinking many times, so I won't repeat myself here).

According to the CIES Football Observatory, Can is worth €38m (!), and if the Reds receive such an inflated offer, it'll be madness to reject it.
