Liverpool FC's summer rebuilding is gathering pace after they announced the £10m signing of Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen.
The 20-year-old will move to Anfield when the European transfer window officially re-opens on July 1, subject to documentation, after the Reds agreed to meet the buy-out clause in his contract.
Can, a German U21 international, becomes Brendan Rodgers' second signing of the summer, as Liverpool look to improve upon a squad that came so close to landing the Premier League title last season.
Rickie Lambert, the England striker, has already signed on, and more arrivals are expected. Bids have been lodged for Alberto Moreno, the Sevilla left back, and Southampton captain Adam Lallana, with the £16m deal for Moreno believed to be edging closer to completion.
