Emre Can has joined Juventus on a four-year deal from Liverpool, the Italian club have announced.
The defender underwent a medical on Thursday after he had agreed to join the Serie A champions with the club later announcing the news on their Twitter account.
"Juventus Football Club announces that a contract of employment with the player Emre Can, effective as of 1st July 2018 and expiring on 30 June 2022, has been signed," read a statement released by the Italian club.
"As a result of the signature of the agreement, Juventus will incur additional costs of €16m (£14m), to be paid over the next two financial years."
Can, who made 115 appearances for Liverpool, has been free to discuss terms with foreign clubs since January with his current contract at Anfield expiring at the end of this month.
The 24-year-old had been struggling with a back problem towards the end of the season but he did play, in what was his last appearance for Jurgen Klopp's side, in the Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid, coming on as a late substitute.
Liverpool have already signed Fabinho from Monaco for £43.7m to replace the German international.
