Emre Can has impressed defensively this season but former Liverpool star John Aldridge believes the 21-year-old could do an even better in a midfield role.
Writing in his Liverpool Echo column Aldridge said: “Emre Can for me could do a fantastic job in central midfield. If we can get a good right-back or right-sided centre-back this summer that will release him for that area.”
Can is expected to move into the Liverpool midfield next season following the departure of captain Steven Gerrard.
The 21-year-old has however, played predominantly as defender this season in Brendan Rodgers back-three.
Can has however, been used as a right-back recently following injury to Mamadou Sakho.
TalkSport pundit Danny Murphy also echoed a similar desire to see Can moved into a midfield role.
“I really want to see Emre Can moved forward into midfield next season,” Murphy told TalkSport.
