The Liverpool midfield is stacked with talent at the moment but you can never have too much of a good thing. Jürgen Klopp is set to add depth to his ranks as Goal have reported that Liverpool are looking to sign Sander Berge from Genk, with the Belgian side’s sporting director Dimitri De Conde confirming the interest.
The Anfield faithful are no stranger to Sander Berge. The 6 foot 5 inch defensive midfielder has appeared against Liverpool twice this season, featuring in both of the teams’ Champions League group stage ties. Berge has played 20 times for Genk this campaign, featuring in every minute of their European matches.
De Conde told Radio Punto Nuovo, “We know that Liverpool are interested and [Jurgen] Klopp, after the game at Anfield, complimented him on his performance.”
The sporting director also confirmed: “Napoli are interested in Sander, it’s a possibility a deal could be done.”
What RTK has to say
If Liverpool sign Sander Berge it would be of little surprise. The 21-year-old is typical of the current Reds transfer model: he is young, talented and would be relatively inexpensive.
The Reds have made a habit of unearthing hidden gems of late. Jürgen Klopp‘s penchant for improving players has allowed the club to buy unfinished articles, malleable stars that can hit their best form under the guidance of the German.
Napoli’s interest is of no surprise given that he has impressed against the Italians. With the midfielder being Norwegian, Liverpool would likely be his first choice as the Reds have a strong following in the Nordic region.
