Leverkusen, Germany (Sports Network) – Bayer Leverkusen snatched up Bayern
Munich midfielder Emre Can on Friday, signing the youngster to a four-year
contract.

Can is regarded as one of the bright young talents in the Bundesliga, and he
hopes his move to Leverkusen will help him secure more first-team action than
he saw with last season’s treble winners.

The 19-year-old appeared in just seven games for Bayern in all competitions
last term, and the Germany Under-21 international is expected to have an
impact on a Leverkusen side that finished last season in third place.

“Emre Can is one of the great German talents in the midfield,” Leverkusen
chief executive Wolfgang Holzhaeuser said.

“We are firmly convinced that he will be able to help us significantly in the
coming years.”
