Liverpool midfielder Emre Can believes he has a lot to learn from summer signing James Milner.
Milner also plays in central midfield and could prove competition for Can’s desire to play in midfield this season but the 21-year-old is relishing the opportunity to play together in the same side.
Can told the official Liverpool website: “James is a great player, and he has a lot of experience in the Premier League and at the highest level, so I am sure there will be a lot I can learn from him.”
Milner joined Liverpool on a free transfer from Manchester City over the summer transfer window.
The 29-year-old provided a total of 45 assists and scored 19 goals in 203 appearances for the Citizens over the past five years.
Milner joins the likes of Joe Gomez Firmino, Adam Bogdan, Danny Ings, Nathaniel Clyne and Christian Benteke who also joined the Premier League giants this season.
Can played as a defender for most of last season but wants to move into a central midfield role after the summer.
The 21-year-old will be competing with Milner, Lucas Leiva, Joe Allen, Henderson and Coutinho for a space in the Liverpool midfield this season.
