Liverpool midfielder Emre Can has completed his transfer to Juventus after signing a four-year deal.

The Germany international's Anfield departure was confirmed earlier this month after the 24-year-old turned down the offer of a new contract.

Can, who was linked with Serie A several months ago, flew into Turin on Thursday to undergo a medical and complete the formalities of his deal.

"Juventus Football Club announces that Emre Can has signed with the Bianconeri to officially join the club on July 1 2018 on a four-year deal," said a statement on Juventus' website.

Arsenal have announced the signing of experienced defender Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus on a free transfer.

The 34-year-old was out of contract at the Serie A champions and joins the Gunners ahead of captaining Switzerland at the World Cup.

Lichsteiner moved to Juventus in 2011 and won seven successive league titles at the club.

He becomes the first signing since Unai Emery's appointment as head coach and will wear the number 12 shirt as he competes with the likes of Hector Bellerin for a place in the side.

Juventus are optimistic of keeping hold of coach Massimiliano Allegri as rumours he will replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal cool.

The 50-year-old led Juve to a fourth successive Serie A and Coppa Italia double this season and has been heavily linked with replacing Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.

Allegri's name emerged as one of the frontrunners following Arsenal's announcement last month that Wenger would step down after 22 years in charge.

After delivering a seventh straight title for Juventus, Allegri said over the weekend: "If they don't fire me, then I think I'm staying at Juventus next year, too."

The club also seem keen to keep the former AC Milan boss in place, with Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta insisting there is a "willingness" for Allegri to stay put.

"On our side there is great optimism," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Beyond just the formal aspects, the relationship between us has worked as well as possible and I think on both sides there is certainly a willingness to continue together.

"We are going to have a meeting with him in the next few days. The manager demonstrated that he is great and I think our relationship can go on."
