Emre Can an ‘exciting’ talent who will shine at Liverpool – Brendan Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers expresses his delight at Liverpool's signing of Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen

Brendan Rodgers has expressed his delight at Liverpool’s capture of Emre Can after the Reds confirmed the signing of the midfielder on Thursday.

The German youth international sealed a switch from Bayer Leverkusen to become the Reds’ third signing of the summer after Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.

And Reds boss Rodgers is thrilled to have concluded a deal for the 20-year-old ahead of Liverpool’s return to the Champions League next season.

“Emre is an exciting young talent and I’m delighted he’s chosen Liverpool for the next phase of his development and growth as a player,” Rodgers told Liverpoolfc.com.

“He has recognised that we are a club that improves and nurtures exciting, ambitious players and I’m looking forward to seeing him take those next steps forward for us.”

“We have tracked his progress for some time and I have been impressed with his attitude and qualities when I have seen him play both in the German Bundesliga and the Champions League.

“He has many of the attributes we look for; charisma on the football pitch and courage to want the ball and make things happen.”
