Predicting the likely success of Liverpool’s summer captures.
Read more Liverpool FC rumours.
Liverpool have had a busy summer in the transfer market, as Brendan Rodgers has already captured six permanent signings as he looks to build a squad capable of absorbing the loss of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
With the Reds also expected to make a double swoop for two Spanish full backs, Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno, this summer will be one of the busiest from a top Premier League club for some time.
Rodgers may have his work cut out gelling his new arrivals into a cohesive Premier League unit, that is also capable of challenging in the Premier League – here is how we think that his eight new boys are likely to fare:
Emre Can (Central Midfielder – Bayer Leverkusen)
One of Rodgers’ first summer signings was utility man Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen, for a deal worth £9.8m. The Turk has impressed during the club’s pre-season campaign, largely playing in an advanced central midfield role, but his versatility is what will make him an important part of the Reds’ squad next season, with Can also capable of playing in a deeper role or at left back.
