Liverpool given huge boost in chase for Champions League

Emre Can

Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been given something extra to shout about following reports from Football Insider that midfielder Emre Can could join their cause to win the Europa League. 

The German international damaged his ankle during midweek’s dramatic win over Borussia Dortmund and underwent a scan on Friday. 

Though he is reported to have shown indications of ligament damage, the Reds and their medical team are remaining confident he will only be out of action for four weeks.

Should the Merseyside giants navigate their way past a tricky semi-final with Villarreal, they could well have the 22-year old back for any potential final. 

Following the injury to skipper Jordan Henderson, having the German international in the squad will serve as a major boost to the engine room.

Henderson will miss the rest of the season with knee ligament damage, though could be available for selection for England before Euro 2016.
