Genk want €25m for Liverpool target Sander Berge
The 21-year-old Norwegian faced us twice in the Champions League and has also attracted the interest of other clubs.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Calciomercato) claims that Napoli have made the 21-year-old their priority signing in the coming months.
Napoli are facing a bit of a crisis in recent weeks with the players also facing off against club president Aurelio de Laurentiis.
Berge came through the ranks at Vaalerenga and moved to Genk in 2017. The Belgians have slapped a €25million price-tag on his head and the report claims Napoli will make a move in January (h/t Calciomercato).
However, due to Napoli’s asking price, Napoli might shelf their move till the summer (h/t Calciomercato).
Berge is also a regular for the Norway national team, and it will be interesting to see if he is on the move soon.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was seen speaking to the player after the Champions League clash at Anfield too (h/t Express).
Big decisions lie for Berge
Berge has to take the right decision regarding his future with first-team football a requirement too.
Napoli have done well in recent seasons despite making managerial changes in the past.
However, Liverpool have also handed chances to young players under Klopp, and we could do with more talents coming in the future.
