Liverpool have a lot of talent in the academy at the minute. The Reds have been buying up talented youngsters from across Europe in an effort to build for the future. One of the best ways for these youngsters to kick on is to get first team experience. According to the Liverpool ECHO, Sepp van den Berg is wanted on loan by clubs across Europe.
Record breaker Sepp van den Berg
When Liverpool signed Sepp van den Berg he had just broken the record for being the youngest player to reach 10 first team appearances in the Dutch Eredivisie.
The Dutchman was one of the Reds’ few signings of last summer, arriving from PEC Zwolle in a deal that could rise to £4.4m.
We have only seen glimpses of the towering defender since he arrived, he’s made impressive appearances in the cups in the past year.
Sepp van den Berg wanted on loan
According to the Liverpool ECHO, Sepp van den Berg is wanted on loan by clubs across Europe and throughout the football league.
The outlet claims that scouts from across the country were in attendance as the youngster led the Liverpool defence in an EFL Trophy game against Tranmere Rovers this week.
The centre back put in an impressive performance and was unlucky to be on the wrong end of a 3-2 score line.
The ECHO believes that the Reds are now weighing up a number of potential destinations for Sepp van den Berg to head on loan. There is said to be interest from the Eredivisie and Bundesliga 2 as well as various levels of the English Football League.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool could well benefit from Sepp van den Berg getting some experience out on loan.
The Dutchman is sure to be a top defender when he reaches his maturity, he’s only 18-years-old at the minute.
Given his first team experience in the Netherlands we could be wasting him, stalling his growth by keeping him in the academy at the minute.
Getting him back to senior football could well be a wise move which could pay dividends in the future.
