Liverpool midfield star could return in time for Roma clash

Liverpool star midfielder Emre Can is hoping to make his first appearance for the Premier League giants since the end of last season according to the official club website.

Liverpool take on Roma at the St. Louis’ 47,000-capacity Busch Stadium tonight as part of their pre-season US summer tour.

The Germany international of Turkish origin made 49 appearances for Liverpool last season before being called up to the Euro 2016 squad.

Can played in the semi-final defeat against France after which he went on an extended leave.

The 23-year-old had a three-week break travelling to Turkey to meet family before jetting off to Los Angeles where he was on holiday until joining up with the Reds squad six days ago.
