Liverpool Set To Sign Can


Reports suggest that Liverpool are set to sign Emre Can from Bayern Leverkusen after activating a £9.75 million release clause in his contract. Brendan Rodgers has been chasing the Germany Under-21 international for a while and has been over to personally check on the player’s progress.


The 20-year-old is an energetic box-to-box player and Rodgers believes he would be a valuable addition to his squad. Inter Milan were also keen on Can but he prefers a move to the Premiership.


Liverpool are hoping to seal a deal with the player this week as Rodgers continues to improve his squad for another assault on the Premier League title.


The player’s agent also instigated the loan deal in 2012 for Nuri Sahin, so he is no stranger to working with Liverpool.


Can is described as one of the most versatile young players in the Bundesliga and after having spent most of his career in the youth set-up at Bayern Munich, the player was tipped for the top from an early age.


After moving to Leverkusen, Can’s career has flourished and his versatility sees him play in either an attacking or defending central midfield role and also deployed as a centre-back and a left-back.


Can has represented Germany at every level from Under 15 to Under 21 level and he has drawn comparison to Bastian Schweinsteiger.


Rodgers has certainly done his homework on Can and if he is as good as the great Bayern Munich midfielder then Liverpool will be making a brilliant signing.
