Real Madrid to hijack deal for Liverpool target Emre Can?

Share

This summer is going to be massive for several Premier League heavyweights and one of them is Liverpool. The Reds having secured Champions League football, courtesy of their second-placed finish in the league last season, are willing to spend big on young, talented players, in order to shape a good squad, capable of handling the rigours of twin competition of both domestic and Europe simultaneously.

Emre Can Real Madrid to hijack deal for €12m Liverpool target?

Although Liverpool have bolstered their attacking line up by signing Rickie Lambert, Brendan Rodgers should be focusing on adding quality players in the central midfield department.

Reports emerged first in Germany and later in English media that Liverpool are considering a move for Bayer Leverkusen’s highly rated central midfielder, Emre Can. The Guardian reported few days back that Liverpool will hold further talks for Can to get an idea whether the 20-year-old wants a move to the Merseyside.

Radio Marca now reporting that Real Madrid, the kings of Europe after winning the La Decima, are plotting a move to sign the versatile box-to-box midfielder. The future of Asier Illarramendi has been speculated in the media, while Xabi Alonso is approaching towards the apogee of his career, so any potential move for a young central midfielder this summer, makes sense.

It remains to be seen whether the interest from Madrid is genuine, or whether Liverpool make any formal offer for him or not in coming days.

  1. Toure, Johnson,and Sakho MUST go.Johnson has the defensive ability Of a crab. He cost us too many goals!
    This is no surprise to most Reds. In fact, they all have!!! We have youngsters! Use them! Sort Kelly And Wisdom out.
    Both lack the confidence req at this level. Ynwa

    • And sakho must go why? He may be big and look clumsy on the ball but he has the best pass completion rate of all our cbs. Psg and france captain at such a young age proves the kid has talent. He needs more time to settle. Toure definitely needs to go but johnson. Yes he had a bad season by his standards but you tell me another full back who can get forward and not only get the ball in the box but shoot with both feet! He has already proven he can defend too. Consistency is all thats needed. We arent chelsea or man city and are ready to scrap someone after 1 bad season. Skrtel scored 4 own goals and its a wonder he didnt give penalties away with his shirt pulling but noone is calling for him to be given the boot. Hes more a liabilty than johnson in my opinion

    • Sakho must not go. what a silly thing to say. agger and skrtel need going first. sakho is young and still developing while the others have had time to prove themselves world class and have failed.

  2. david, how can said such thing sell sakho and johnson, Are you out of ur mind?.
