A select round-up of transfer news relating to Liverpool…
According to a report, Liverpool are attempting to push through a deal for Emre Can this summer, as they try to get one over his former club Bayern Munich.
The 20-year-old Bayer Leverkusen midfielder is said to have a clause in his contract allowing Bayern to bring him back to the Allianz Arena. But according to the Mirror that cannot be activated until 2015, allowing Liverpool a free run at Can this summer.
The Bayer Leverkusen man is a supremely gifted and versatile young player who would certainly improve Brendan Rodgers' side, and the latest story claims the Reds are closing in on a move.
In other news, the Mirror reports that Liverpool are concerned Luis Suarez could be rushed back into action for Uruguay at the World Cup, thus putting his fitness in doubt for the start of the new domestic campaign.
Suarez broke down in training and had an operation at the end of last week, and while the player has since said he will be ready for the summer tournament there are worries over his lack of training going into such a big event.
Considering the striker’s importance this season, it would be no surprise if Rodgers was watching the Uruguayan camp with anxious anticipation in the weeks ahead.
