Liverpool have agreed a deal in principle with Bayer Leverkusen to sign highly-rated midfielder Emre Can.
Emre Can began his youth career at Eintracht Frankfurt before joining Bayern Munich where he stayed with the top German job for four years. He later transferred to Bayer Leverkusen, where he has been since 2013. He helped Leverkusen finish fourth in the Bundesliga.
Can won the UEFA Champions League with Bayern Munich in the 2012-13 season, and has been capped at the u-15 through u-21 levels with Germany.
Because of his Turkish ancestry, Emre Can could play for Turkey or Germany at the senior international level, but has his heart set on Germany where he was born and has grown up since 1994.
Twenty-year old Emre Can has a £10million release clause in his contract, and Liverpool have now met that figure. A deal will be finalized once documentation has been finished.
