Juventus executive Giuseppe Marrotta admits Liverpool midfielder Emre Can may not sign for the Italian giants, despite their long-term interest.
Can, a free agent this summer, was expected to leave Merseyside when his contract expires with Juve his most likely destination.
However, it now seems as though the move is not as clear-cut as first it first seemed.
With Juve reportedly issuing an ultimatum to the Germany international to sign soon or not at all, the 24-year-old’s future seems even more unclear.
In a story published in The Sun , Marrotta said: “"We know that there are other clubs in the race to sign him.
"If he decides to come to Juventus, we will be happy, but if he decides to join another team, we will take another chance."
Jürgen Klopp is reluctant to let the versatile Can leave, especially for a free transfer.
As well as Juventus, Bayern Munich and Manchester City are reportedly keen on securing his signature for free.
The former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder joined Liverpool in a £9.75 million deal in 2014, and has made 112 appearances for the Premier League side.
