Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers hails the arrival of "exciting young talent" Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has described Emre Can as an "exciting" addition to the team following his arrival from Bayer Leverkusen.

The 20-year-old completed his switch to Anfield today after agreeing a move last month.

"Emre is an exciting young talent and I'm delighted he's chosen Liverpool for the next phase of his development and growth as a player," Rodgers told the club's official website.

"We have tracked his progress for some time and I have been impressed with his attitude and qualities when I have seen him play both in the German Bundesliga and the Champions League.

"He has many of the attributes we look for - charisma on the football pitch and courage to want the ball and make things happen."

Can scored three times in 29 appearances in the Bundesliga last season.
