Liverpool Sign German Talent

Liverpool's rebuilding process continues as the club made a formal offer for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder, Emre Can.

Leverkusen chief executive, Michael Schade, confirmed Wednesday that the Merseyside outfit had put in an official bid for the 20-year-old German U21 international.

"Until Tuesday, it was a rumour," Schade told German newspaper Bild.

"Now I can confirm that an official offer from Liverpool is received by mail."

Can has a €12 million (R 175 million) buyout clause in his contract, with Bayern Munich's buy-back option reportedly no longer valid.

The 20-year-old moved from Bayern Munich to Leverkusen for about €5.4 million (R 79 million) last year and the German champions will receive a margin of the transfer fee from the Liverpool deal.

Liverpool have confirmed the deal by stating on the club's official website: "Liverpool FC have agreed a deal in principle with Bayern Leverkusen to sign 20-year-old Emre Can, subject to documentation being completed."

Other Liverpool targets are Southampton's Adam Lallana and Sevilla's Alberto Moreno, with the proposed deals running into obstacles due to price.

The Reds announced on Monday their first signing of the transfer window, Rickie Lambert from Southampton for £4 million (R 72 million).
