Klopp interested in Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge

Jurgen Klopp is a real fan of Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge, according to the latest Liverpool transfer news. The midfielder is expected to move this week.

According to The Athletic, Sander Berge will almost leave his parent club Sheffield United within the next few hours of the transfer window.

Why Klopp wants Sander Berge?

But according to Sky Sports reporters, it’s Fulham who are leading the race at this moment. Reporter Kaveh Solhekol claimed that the English side has an offer of 20M on the cards.

The transfer race is on

The Merseyside giants need to act fast to secure this deal. We all know the influence of Klopp is hard to refuse. The German has a history of transforming players into legends and it is because of his recruitment the Reds are England and European champions.

Liverpool have been linked with Berge for years now. In 2019 Goal reported that the English giants are monitoring Berge.
