Gerrard parted ways with the Reds after spending his entire footballing career at the club for MLS outfit LA Galaxy.
The former Reds captain met Can who managed to find him while on his travels and shared a picture together with the midfielder on his official Instagram account.
Gerrard established himself as an iconic Liverpool player during his years of service for the club and played a key role in the Reds winning the 2005 Champions League title in 2005.
The former Reds star is a role model for Can and there have been calls from some segments of the Liverpool fan base for the 22-year-old to be considered for the captaincy role.
Can has now teamed up with the Liverpool squad who are currently on tour of the US as part of their pre-season build-up.
The Reds will take on Chelsea in the International Champions Cup in the Rose Bowl tomorrow.
Do you think Emre Can should become Liverpool captain?
