Man Utd, Tottenham and Dortmund eye Emre Can
Manchester United, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund are hoping to sign Juventus midfielder Emre Can.
Can, 26, is out of favour in Turin and has made just two Serie A starts this season. The former Liverpool midfielder will reportedly be allowed to leave during this transfer window and three European giants are eyeing the Germany international.
PEAK STORY – MAN UTD, TOTTENHAM AND DORTMUND EYE EMRE CAN: Manchester United, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund are chasing Juventus’ Can, according to media reports. With Euro 2020 coming up later this year, Can wants regular playing time to earn a spot in the Germany squad.
Can made 37 appearances in all competitions for Juve last season, but has played just eight times in 2019-20. Sportmediaset reports Juve are working on a move for Napoli midfielder Allan to replace Can. ROUND-UP – Inter will wrap up a deal for Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen early next week, according to Sky Sport Italia. The Serie A club will pay €18million (£15.2m) plus €2m (£1.7m) in bonuses for Eriksen, who is out of contract at season’s end.
Staying at San Siro and Inter are targeting Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud after recognising it would be difficult to sign Napoli’s Fernando Llorente, according to Sky Sport Italia.
Barcelona are making progress in their bid to land Valencia forward Rodrigo, according to Sport. While working on a loan move, Barcelona want an option to buy at season’s end, while Valencia want it to be an obligation to purchase for around €60m. The report says Barca are willing to pay Valencia a “penalty fee” if they do not make the loan permanent.
