Watch: Steven Gerrard Accidentally Confirms Liverpool Player Is Leaving Club

If you weren't watching the pre-match build-up to FC Porto vs. Liverpool, then you would have missed Steven Gerrard accidentally revealing the future of a Liverpool player.

Jurgen Klopp is set for a busy summer window after the end of this season.

While he drafted in Virgil van Dijk from Southampton for a club record £75 million, the German boss remains keen on bolstering his squad.

The club will recruit RB Leipzig's Naby Keita after agreeing a pre-contract.

But it appears Emre Can is going the other way after a slip of the tongue from Gerrard.

"We'll have to see what happens. Emre Can is leaving but Keita is coming in," he said on BT Sports prior to kick-off.

Can, 24, has been heavily linked with a move to Serie A champions, Juventus.

Premier League leaders Manchester City have also reportedly expressed an interest.

Naturally, Gerrard's words got everybody talking on social media. Here's some reaction:
