Liverpool are interested in signing Genk midfielder Sander Berge according to the Belgian club’s sporting director Dimitri De Conde.

The Norway international has featured heavily for the Belgian giants in their league games as well as Champions League fixtures so far this season.

Despite Genk having gone down against Liverpool in Europe’s premier club competition, Berge may well have caught the eye of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

“Napoli are interested in Sander, it’s a possibility a deal could be done,” De Conde told Radio Punto Nuovo

“We also know that Liverpool are interested and [Jurgen] Klopp, after the game at Anfield, complimented him on his performance.

“There are clubs in Italy who are following Berge and Napoli could be one of them, but at this stage there are no offers on the table. From next week, things could change.

“We haven’t had any official contact with Napoli yet.”

Berge’s career has underwent an upward spiral since he started his professional career with Asker in his native Norway back in 2013 before moving onto Valerenga in 2015.

After impressing with Valerenga, he earned a move to Belgium during the summer of 2017.

The 19-times capped Norway international looks like he is developing into an exciting talent. If he carries on at this rate, he could be an exciting addition to the Liverpool first-team.

A move to Anfield will always be appealing to him as they are one of the best clubs in the world at the moment.

It will however remain to be seen if Liverpool would be able to offer him regular first team football.
