Liverpool interested in Sander Berge?

After his impressive start to the season, Berge is said to be attracting interest from some top clubs in Europe.

Genk’s sporting director Dimitri De Conde has recently spoken about Berge, claiming that Napoli are interested in him, and it is possible a deal could be done.

But Conde also claimed that Liverpool are interested in the midfielder, and that Jurgen Klopp complimented Berge on his display after Genk’s meeting with the Reds at Anfield:

“Napoli are interested in Sander, it’s a possibility a deal could be done.

“We also know that Liverpool are interested and [Jurgen] Klopp, after the game at Anfield [in the Champions League], complimented him on his performance.

“There are clubs in Italy who are following Berge and Napoli could be one of them, but at this stage there are no offers on the table. From next week, things could change. “We haven’t had any official contact with Napoli yet.” As quoted by Goal.
