5 players to follow Emre Can to Liverpool this summer

Thorgan HazardLiverpool have been the busiest Premier League club of the summer transfer window thus far, having completed the signing of German midfielder Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen yesterday.

The 20-year-old has completed a £9.75 million move to Anfield, and follows Rickie Lambert as the club’s second major signing of what is shaping up to be a busy transfer window.

Can is one of Germany’s most highly-rated young prospects, having previously been on the books of Bayern Munich.

He was allowed to join Leverkusen a year ago for £4 million, although Munich were keen to insert a buy-back clause into the contract of a player they have believe can go on to become as good as the likes of Toni Kroos and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Rodgers has put a lot of faith in young players during his time at Anfield, and has been impressed with the progress Can made last season.

The German Under-21 international managed 29 appearances and three goals for Leverkusen, and Rodgers travelled to Germany to personally check on the exciting box-to-box midfielder.

Having activated a release clause in the player’s contract, the Reds are confident they have secured something of a transfer coup.

But who will be following Can to the Premier League title chasers this summer?
