This source believes Rafa is planning for the worst!
A number of top Premier League clubs have been linked to one of the stars of French football…the Albanian midfielder Lorik Cana this summer. The list of reported admirers for the Marseille captain includes Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and Tottenham.
Cana is a 25-year-old defensive midfielder with a reputation as a hard man in French football after numerous booking and red cards following his 7-season spell in France for both PSG and Marseille. The 6 ft 1 star is a cult figure at the Stade Velodrome for his no-nonsense displays and is more than physically equipped for English football.

Many sources seem to believe that Javier Mascherano, as well as Xabi Alonso, may well have played their last games for Liverpool, and it’s a rumour that I think people are getting a little carried away with but at the same time it wouldn’t surprise me if Rafa was keeping his options open by considering potential signings to replace two players who would be very hard to cope without.
Lorik Cana is a tough customer who has a no nonsense style that belies the ability he does possess when needed to play the ball out from defense and link to the attack. He is a solid player who appears ready to call time on his time in France and Liverpool are said to be one of the front runners for the former PSG player, but only of course if they lose either of their talismanic midfielders.
Cana to Liverpool: Will only become relevant if the club loses Mascherano which Rafa will fight tooth and nail to avoid!
