Juventus midfielder Emre Can has reportedly offered himself to Real Madrid as he seeks to pursue a fresh challenge away from the Turin giants.

The former Liverpool star has struggled to nail down a regular role since his arrival at the Bianconeri last year and his situation has become more dire under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Since the beginning of the season, the Germany international has managed just 52 minutes of Serie A action while Sarri has decided to exclude him from the Champions League squad for the group stages.

According to Tuttosport, Can has signalled the desire to leave the Bianconeri at the turn of the year and Los Blancos are among the high-profile sides, who have been alerted through his representative.

The same publication claims that Can could be available for as little as £17m and Los Blancos president Florentino Perez is seriously considering the prospect of making an approach.

Real Madrid were hot on the trail for a new central midfielder last summer but they could not seal a transfer agreement for either Paul Pogba or Donny van de Beek.
