Liverpool joined the race for Sheffield United 22-year-old midfielder

By | April 15, 2021

Liverpool have joined Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to secure the services of Sander Berge from Sheffield United, according to the reports.

The Norway international joined Premier League relegation battlers from Genk for a club-record £22m fee last summer and has played 13 games for the Blades.

Berge has not featured at all since December following to a hamstring injury and may have already played his final game for United, who are heading back to the Championship.

Despite his limited playing time, the Guuand Spurs were recently tipped to move for the 23-year-old, whose valuation is likely to remain around the £22m mark.

Eurosport claims that the Merseyside Reds are also in the running to secure the services of Berge, whom Jurgen Klopp sees as an ideal – and affordable – option to sign a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum.

Borussia Monchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus is another rumoured target for Jurgen Klopp’s side, with the player having recently refused to rule out a move to Anfield.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are reportedly planning to make a move to sign Marseille left-back Jordan Amavi on a free transfer in the summer.

Gunners head-coach Mikel Arteta is set to target a left-back when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer in order to increase competition for Kieran Tierney.

And he has been rumoured with a swoop for Amavi, who has rebuilt his career at Marseille after flopping at Aston Villa.
