Emre Can: Liverpool agree deal for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder after meeting £9.75m buy-out clause
Can follows Rickie Lambert to Anfield this summer
The fee for German Under-21 international is £9.75m after the Reds met the buy-out clause.
The Frankfurt-born player of Turkish descent began his professional career at Bayern Munich before signing for Leverkusen last summer. He was an integral part of the side last season, making 29 appearances in the Bundesliga.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers revealed at the end of the season that he hopes to get most of his transfer business concluded before the start of the World Cup as he looks to strengthen his squad ahead of their Champions League campaign next term.
Can will be the second player to sign for the Reds this summer after Rickie Lambert joined for £4m from Southampton earlier this week.
