One of Klopp’s former favourites has been transfer listed – Should Liverpool re-sign versatile midfielder?

Former Liverpool player Emre Can is reportedly been placed on Borussia Dortmund’s transfer list which has sparked speculation about a potential return.

Can, 28, has come under fire in recent times in Germany and is likely to leave this summer.

Leaving Liverpool in 2017, he was a regular starter under Jurgen Klopp in his early days at Anfield.

He joined Juventus on a free transfer but Klopp wanted to keep him at the time – could we see Liverpool strike a deal once again?

Transfer Listed

Emre Can is now on the transfer list at Borussia Dortmund after a falling out with the club, reports from Germany have claimed.

BILD claims that the midfielder’s attitude has been poor and disruptive and that the club will accept offers for the former Bayer Leverkusen player.

Can is a highly experienced and versatile midfielder at his best, capable of playing centre back in a back three or anywhere in midfield.

However, he suffered from muscular injuries for large periods of last season only featuring 28 times in total.

Liverpool’s Midfield Situation

The Reds have been linked with the likes of Jude Bellingham, Nicolo Barella and Matheus Nunes so far this window, despite Klopp claiming he was happy with his midfield options.

They will push for Bellingham next summer, but it’s likely Can won’t be an option for Liverpool given his form and injury record in recent seasons.

Liverpool already have injury-prone midfielders in Thiago, Naby Keita and Thiago and it wouldn’t be wise to add another to that list.

However, he isn’t the only former Liverpool player to be on the transfer list this summer; PSG midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is also reportedly heading for the exit in Paris.

Despite being labelled as a ‘failed move’ he did feature 31 times in the PSG’s Ligue 1 triumph, but only started 18 times.

Whilst Liverpool are unlikely to sign either of their former players, perhaps it’s an example that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
