According to reports from The Times, Borussia Dortmund are showing keen interest in Liverpool midfielder Emre Can.

Can has a contract with the Reds till 2018, and will be free to begin negotiations with foreign clubs in January.

The 23-year-old is enjoying a brilliant campaign for the Reds, having made 15 appearances, including 14 starts, scoring three goals and assisting twice.

Liverpool have held contract talks with him, but have failed to agree to a deal. Should the Reds fail to tie him up with a fat contract, they should try to fork out a deal with Dortmund involving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The strike department is one area where Jurgen Klopp needs to add quality players in. Daniel Sturridge hasn’t done enough to convince Klopp, while Danny Ings has struggled with recurrent injury problems and is now facing an uncertain future.

Divock Origi is out on loan, and hasn’t been doing enough to get back into the first team picture at Liverpool next season.

Aubameyang is a world class striker. The 28-year-old was signed by Klopp at Dortmund, and has been a key player for them ever since. He has scored 135 goals in all competitions so far, and has already scored 15 this season.

Liverpool should use this opportunity to include Can in a part exchange deal to sign Aubameyang, either in January or next summer.
