Emre Can has returned to the Liverpool first-team for a training camp in Spain

Emre Can has stepped up his return from injury by travelling with the Liverpool squad for a four-day training camp in Marbella.

Jurgen Klopp and his Reds team have flown out for a brief stay on the Spanish coast, where they will begin preparations for the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Germany international Can has not played for the Reds since suffering a back injury against Watford in March.

The 24-year-old had returned to his homeland for specialist treatment, but has now re-joined the Liverpool team and flew out to Marbella with the rest of the squad on Wednesday for a brief training camp.

Can will continue his rehab in Spain, with the Reds assessing his problem throughout the trip before deciding if he can make a full return to first-team training ahead of the final in Kiev on May 26.

If the midfielder, who has missed out on a place in Germany’s World Cup squad, fails to prove his fitness, he is likely to have played his last game in a Liverpool shirt.

Can is expected to leave the club in the summer when his contract expires, having failed to agree a new deal at Anfield.

Italian champions Juventus and German giants Bayern Munich, where he came through the youth ranks, have both registered an interest in the 24-year-old.
