Departed Liverpool player Emre Can has now officially completed his free transfer move to Juventus.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Reds from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2014, was announced to be departing with Liverpool this summer as he will not be renewing his contract with the Merseysiders this summer.

Since joining the Reds from Bundesliga club, the Germany international has completed 167 appearances in his four seasons at the English club scoring 14 goals in the process.

Emre Can made his last and brief appearance for Liverpool in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev.

Speaking to Juventus’ official TV, Emre Can said: “This is an amazing day for me, one of the best in my life. I am happy to be here, it’s a big club. I’ve visited the J Medical and the head quarters that are big and amazing places.”

“I chose Juventus because this is a great club, I’ve been dreaming to join Juventus since I was a child. Everybody knows this club is a winning one, I am a winner too and that’s why I will have no problems in settling in well.”

“Juve was in my destiny, when I was six one of my coaches told me that I was destined to play for Juve. I will never forget that and I am happy to be here. Khedira confirmed me that this is a great club and that I would fit in well.”

“Everybody knows that Allegri is a winner. I talked to him and I am looking forward to beginning the season. Our objective is to win the Scudetto, we know it’s not going to be easy. Number 23? It brings me luck I had asked my agent if I could take it because it was worn by many legends.”

Despite having 20 caps for the Germany national team, Can missed out in Joachim Low World cup squad.

“Today is the first day of a new chapter of my life,” Emre Can wrote on his Instagram page.

“I want to say thank you to all the people of Liverpool , to my coaches, to the staff, to the staff behind the staff, the supporters, to everyone.

“I will always think back with a smile and one piece of my heart will always be in Liverpool.

“It was a big honour for me to play for Liverpool. I hope to see you one day again. Take care.”
