Done Deal:-Borussia Dortmund have signed Emre Can from Juventus on Deadline Day on an initial loan.

The former Liverpool midfielder joins the Bundesliga club on loan until the end of the season with an obligation to buy for around £21m (€25m), to be paid over three years, if conditions are met in the rest of the 2019/20 campaign.

Dortmund signed off the sale of Paco Alcacer to Villarreal on Thursday, pocketing €23m (£19.3m) and funding the club’s move for Can.

The 26-year-old Germany international arrived in Italy on a free transfer from Liverpool in 2018 and scored four goals in 45 appearances for the Serie A club.

However, he struggled to claim a spot under new boss Maurizio Sarri this season, starting just two Serie A games, coming off the bench six times and remaining an unused substitute on 12 occasions.

He was also left out of Juve’s squad for the Champions League group stages, something which made him hit out at the club for being “unfair”.
