Gerrard lets slip that Liverpool star is heading for summer exit

Klopp unsure about Simon Mignolet future

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard appeared to confirm that Emre Can is set to join Juventus.

The German midfielder, who joined Liverpool in 2014, is now in a contract stand-off with his deal at Anfield expiring at the end of the season.

Reports suggest Can has reached an agreement in principle to complete a move to Turin next summer, with the 24-year-old midfielder out of contract at Anfield at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

When asked about Reds' midfield in his role as a BT Sport pundit, the club's former skipper said: "You have to wait to see what's going to happen because Emre Can is leaving and (Naby) Keita is coming in as a number eight".

The Germany global is out of contract at the end of the season and while the Reds are desperate to keep hold of him, he is yet to agree to a new deal with Liverpool.

"That's not cool for the club but there are moments in which you have to accept it".

The comments came after Liverpool's impressive 0-5 dismantling of Porto in the first leg of the two sides' last-16 clash in the Champions League.

With two goals and three assists from his relatively deep-lying midfield position, Can has had a big impact for the Reds, who have scored a whopping 61 league goals this season.

Klopp has even handed the German the captaincy this season, in the hope that Can might change his mind over his future. Liverpool, however, have already secured a replacement in Naby Keita, who will arrive from Red Bull Leipzig in the summer.
