Emre Can officially released by Liverpool

Germany midfielder Emre Can will leave Liverpool when his contract expires this summer.

LONDON, June 9 ― German global midfielder Emre Can is to leave Liverpool now his contract has expired, the Premier League club confirmed yesterday.

And two of the most famous names on the list are Emre Can and Jon Flanagan.

After joining from Bayer Leverkeusen in 2014 in a £10m deal, he made 167 appearances for the club.

The 24-year-old has had a string of serious knee issues in the past and complications came up during his medical in Paris on Thursday.

Flanagan is an academy graduate who made his debut in 2011 against Manchester City.

The Dubliner was on the fringes of the first-team squad last season and has been handed a new contract to keep him at the Premier League side.

It is believed that as a result of Can's contract dispute at Liverpool he signed a deal with Juventus part-way through last season.

Speculation about a move to the Serie A club intensified in the second half of the season and Turin now seems a likely destination for the midfielder.

Liverpool also announced the departures of Toni Gomes, Paulo Alves, Mich'el Parker, Jordan Williams, Anthony Glennon, Jordan Hunter, Harvey Whyte and Yan Dhanda.

There was, however, better news for Irish defender Conor Masterson.
