Sander Berge admits he wants to play at Anfield as often as possible

Genk midfielder Sander Berge has faced Liverpool twice in the Champions League this season.

Berge was recently speaking to Norway’s TV2 and highlighted he wanted to play as often as he could at Anfield (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“Playing at Anfield is a dream for everyone in the world, and not least for Norwegians.

“Liverpool are the best team [at the moment] and have the most fans. So I could certainly like to play at Anfield as often as possible.”

The Norway international has featured in 20 games for Genk this season and has also scored once for the national team. The 21-year-old made a name for himself at Vaalerenga before joining Genk in the 2016-17 season.

Liverpool’s midfield options

The Reds already have several options in the midfield and it will be interesting to see if we move for any senior players next summer.

Liverpool didn’t make too many moves at the start of the season but a couple of our midfielders are ageing. James Milner and Adam Lallana are over 30 while Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson are 29.

Lallana has struggled with injuries in recent years and is a free agent at the end of the season.

Milner is a crucial part of the team, but the former Leeds United midfielder is also out of a contract in the summer.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

French journalist claims this World Cup winner could consider Liverpool move

French journalist says Kylian Mbappe will consider Liverpool move

Kylian Mbappe has already established himself as one of the best players in the world. Having won the World Cup with France, the youngster has carved out a reputation for himself.

According to ESPN (h/t Liverpool Echo), French journalist Julian Laurens has stated that the player views Liverpool as an attractive proposition. The stumbling block, however, is the fee which is expected to be around €300million to €350million – including bonuses.

Mbappe has been quite vocal in his admiration for Liverpool and recently praised the Reds for their mentality. (h/t Express)

An exciting prospect at Monaco, Mbappe has set the league alight since his move to PSG. He won the French Player of the Year in 2018 and 2019 and led the national team to the World Cup in 2018.

An expensive gamble

Liverpool are currently the European and World Champions. However, it is unlikely for us to pay anything close to the amount quoted. The same was stated by Jurgen Klopp in an earlier interview. (h/t The Times)

Apart from the transfer fee, Liverpool will also have to restructure their wage structure to accommodate the Frenchman. It would open a Pandora’s box that might disrupt the squad’s harmony. Laurens also went on to say that Real Madrid remain Mbappe’s dream move.

There is no doubt that Mbappe is one of the world’s best. The Reds, however, must emphasize on buying for the system rather than tweaking a system to fit a player. Liverpool are already in possession of a team with its best years ahead. It will be interesting to see if Mbappe joins that unit.

Liverpool tracking Rennes youngster Eduardo Camavinga

French teenager Eduardo Camavinga is enjoying an impressive season for Rennes in the Ligue 1.

The 17-year-old is having a breakout season and has made 28 appearances in all competitions for the Roazhon Park outfit, chipping in with a goal and an assist. (h/t Whoscored)

According to Calciomercato (h/t Liverpool Echo), Liverpool are interested in securing the signature of the youngster.

The impressive youngster has also drawn interest from Manchester United, AC Milan, and Barcelona. According to the report (h/t Liverpool Echo), German giants Borussia Dortmund look to have gained the upper hand in securing the player and are now favourites.

One for the future?

Liverpool are currently well-stocked in the midfield and it is hard to imagine Camavinga breaking into the first XI.

James Milner is in the twilight years of his career whereas Henderson and Wijaldum will turn 30 this year. To that end, Camavinga could be potentially groomed to take their spot in the future.

Considered one of the best young players in the world, the 17-year-old has been likened to former Argentine star Fernando Redondo in his prime.

Camavinga is equally adept at playing in central midfield and defensive midfield. Rennes are understood to be holding out for €100million for the youngster.

At the age of just 17, Camavinga has already made 31 appearances for Rennes and also made his debut for the French Under-21 side.

Liverpool have already been linked with the likes of Kai Havertz and also have Marko Grujic returning from his loan spell in the summer. Whether the Reds bid for Camavinga or not remains to be seen.
