Liverpool have been recruiting the team of tomorrow in recent years. We’ve seen the club bring in some of the brightest youngsters in Europe in order to prepare for the future. The best of the bunch are out on loan at the moment. Fans have been raving over Sepp van den Berg as he continues to impress at Preston.
Sepp van den Berg record breaker
Liverpool signed Sepp van den Berg in the summer of 2019.
The Dutchman arrived hot on the heels of our sixth European Cup win.
Along with Harvey Elliott, he was one of only two outfield signings.
Prior to joining the Reds the centre back had broken the record for being the youngest player to reach ten appearances in the Dutch to flight.
Since arriving at Anfield he’s made sporadic first team appearances in the cups and he’s impressed for the U23s.
In January he joined Preston North End on loan as part of the deal which saw the Reds sign Ben Davies; the Championship side also have first dibs on him for a loan move next season.
