TURIN, ITALY (REUTERS) - Juventus have completed the signing of Germany midfielder Emre Can from Liverpool on a four-year contract, the Italian champions said on Thursday (June 21). 

The 24-year-old will join the Turin-based club on a free transfer when his contract at Anfield expires at the end of this month and will be Juve's second signing of the close season following the arrival of goalkeeper Mattia Perin from Genoa. 

Can, who joined Liverpool in 2014, made his 167th and final appearance for the Merseyside outfit when he came on as a substitute in their Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid last month. 

He has been capped 20 times by Germany but missed out on Joachim Low’s final 23-man World Cup squad. 

Can arrived at Juventus earlier in the day to undergo medical tests and in a video posted on the club's Twitter account, he expressed his delight at having sealed the move.
