Liverpool have some talented youngsters on the books. The Reds have some wonderkids recruited locally and some brought in from further afield. The academy set up is hoping to provide us with the team of tomorrow, saving us millions down the line. One of the Reds’ most precious wonderkids Sepp van den Berg is “likely” to leave on loan according to the Liverpool ECHO.
Sepp van den Berg at Liverpool
Liverpool signed Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle in June 2019.
The Reds paid an initial £1.3m for the teenager with the centre back having recently broken the record for being the youngest player to reach 10 appearances in the Dutch Eredivisie.
Since joining he has impressed for the U23s side, he also made four first team appearances in his first season at Anfield.
Sepp van den Berg loan
According to the Liverpool ECHO, Sepp van den Berg is “likely” to leave on loan before Friday’s deadline.
The outlet has claimed that there is interest from the Dutch top flight, the second tier in Germany and throughout the football league.
At 18-years-old he is already incredibly mature in his game and has significant first team experience at a young age given his breakthrough at PEC Zwolle.
What RTK has to say
This would be a smart move for Liverpool. If Sepp van den Berg were to leave on loan then Billy Koumetio could lead the defence for the U23s and step up in FA Cup games if required.
Sepp would also gain valuable first team experience which will be crucial to his development.
At just 18-years-old it will be some years before we see him threatening for a first team berth but we have no doubt that he will at some point in the future.
