LIVERPOOL SET TO SIGN TEENAGE DEFENDER, SEPP VAN DEN BERG

Liverpool are battling a host of big European clubs for the signing of Dutch prospect Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle.

Sepp Van Den Berg

Bayern Munich are reported to be desperate to sign the 17-year-old centre-back, Sampdoria bid £2.5m for him in January and Ajax and PSV Eindhoven are also circling.

Liverpool already have four center-backs in Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren, but view Van Den Berg as a player they can develop for the long term, while also recognising he has the potential to play first-team football immediately if required.

It’s understood the club view the player as a similar project and at a similar stage of development as Joe Gomez when he signed from Charlton in 2015.
