Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has earmarked a summer move for Bayer Leverkusen midfield ace Emre Can, reports the Daily Star.
The Reds want to sign the £12m rated 20-year-old, who has been dubbed ‘The new Michael Ballack’ in various circles.
The Premier League title contenders may have to compete with Bayern Munich though, who secured a buy-back option when they sold Can to Leverkusen last summer.
Liverpool currently have Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Lucas and Joe Allen as central midfield options, although with Champions League football guaranteed next term, Rodgers is keen to strengthen his squad heavily.
Can is technically excellent, and has won caps for various German youth sides. This term in the Bundesliga, he’s scored two and assisted two, and prides himself on his ability to drive through the middle of the park, and play long, sprayed diagonal balls.
