Liverpool saw Berge in action during the two Champions League clashes this season, and Jurgen Klopp also spoke with him during one game.

The 21-year-old midfielder has just 18 months left on his contract and seems set to leave the Belgian side (h/t Mirror).

Fabinho picked up an injury during the 1-1 draw against Napoli. The midfielder is expected to be out till the New Year but it could be further than that too (h/t Mirror).

The Reds could be interested in a January swoop for Berge but Napoli and Chelsea are also keen on the 21-year-old (h/t Mirror).

Liverpool have options for Fabinho

Not many can do the same role as Fabinho but the Reds have options to replace the Brazilian.

Georginio Wijnaldum has played in a deeper role before while Adam Lallana has been tested in that position this season.

The Reds can also mix their midfield up to include Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and make it more attacking.

Losing Fabinho for the busiest part of the season is a blow, but injuries are part of the game.
