Liverpool: Emre Can and Jon Flanagan to leave Anfield

Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp had hoped to hold onto Can, despite the 24-year-old having been heavily linked with a move to Italian champion Juventus.

Emre Can has officially left Liverpool at the end of his contract and is expected to join Juventus imminently.

Liverpool signed Can in the summer of 2014 in a £9.75million deal from Bayer Leverkusen.

Can went on to make 167 appearances for Liverpool, with the last one of those coming in the finals of the UEFA Champions League last season, when his side were beaten 3-1 by Real Madrid.

Liverpool have confirmed Emre Can will depart Anfield when his contract expires at the end of the month. Meanwhile Joachim Löw has chosen to use him as a right back for Germany, although he has missed out on this summer's World Cup squad.

For several years, Kirwan worked on his musical career, and he recorded three solo albums from the period between 1975 and 1979. Mick Fleetwood announced the passing of his bandmate, calling him a "huge force" for the iconic band's early years.

But injuries sidetracked his career afterward, and he has since featured in just 11 Premier League games for the Reds.

The Reds, meanwhile, have effectively moved to replace Can already with the £40m acquisition of Brazilian worldwide Fabinho from Monaco.

Another central midfielder, Naby Keita, is arriving from RB Leipzig in July in a transfer worth £52.75m while the Reds are also close to agreeing a deal for France playmaker Nabil Fekir.

The other notable name on to be released by Liverpool is defender Jon Flanagan.
