Liverpool are going head-to-head with Inter Milan for Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool are locked in a straight fight with Inter Milan for Can but are confident of landing him after discovering he has a £10million release clause in his Bayer Leverkusen contract.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has made several personal checks on the former Bayern Munich prospect and wants to sign him this summer.

Inter are also keen, but sources close to Leverkusen believe Can will opt for the Barclays Premier League ahead of Serie A and is ready to push for his release clause to be activated.
