Liverpool are ready to accept a big-money bid for one of their players from Italy, while Tottenham are casting their eyes over a Hoffenheim defender, according to Wednesday’s newspapers.
LIVERPOOL READY TO LET EMRE CAN MOVE ON
Liverpool look ready to allow midfielder Emre Can to leave Anfield, according to various reports on Wednesday morning.
The Germany midfielder has just 12 months left on his existing contract at Anfield and he is yet to agree fresh terms with the club, amid strong rumours linking him with Juventus.
Now, according to The Sun, Can has already agreed personal terms with the Serie A champions ahead of a proposed switch to Italy.
Furthermore, the Daily Express say Liverpool value Can at around the £35million, but are likely to accept a £30.4m bid for the midfielder.
Juventus are also keen on a deal for Nemanja Matic, but Chelsea’s £40m asking price for the Serbian is putting them off and it appears they see Can as a more viable option.
As a result, Matic has once again been linked with a move to Manchester United.
CAN TOTTENHAM MAKE HOFFENHEIM MAKE THEIR FIRST CAPTURE?
Tottenham are considering a move for Hoffenheim defender Jeremy Toljan, according to the Daily Mail.
The paper claims Spurs want to sign the versatile full-back, who can play on the right or left of defence and is seen as ideal competition for Kieran Trippier, Danny Rose and Ben Davies.
Spurs have moved for the Germany U21 defender after efforts to land Porto full-back Ricardo Pereira, 23, broke down over the Portuguese club’s £20m valuation and complications over third-party ownership.
Toljan has just a year left on his contract with the Bundesliga side and Spurs,who are yet to sign anyone this summer, believe he could be brought in for a relatively small fee.
Hoffenheim’s director of football Alex Rosen asked about Tottenham’s interest told Bild: “If Tottenham comes and offers to triple your salary, then you can’t say too many negative things: London is an unattractive city or Tottenham a bad club. This is all very positive – and then young people think about it.”
