Liverpool, Chelsea join the race to sign Sander Berge

Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge.

According to Talksport’s report, both Premier League clubs have taken note of the impressive 24-year-old’s slow progress since joining the Blaze.

Berge has also been linked with a move from Sheffield United in the past, especially when they were relegated from the Premier League.

It will be interesting to see if Chelsea or Liverpool are ready to move forward with an official proposal before the January window closes.

Chelsea have tried to sign players like Enzo Fernandes and Moises Caicedo this month, but the Blues have failed to sign two players. Berge could be a more attainable target, and even cheaper compared to Caicedo and Fernandes.

The 24-year-old has played in the Premier League before and has had a decent run with Sheffield United. He will add much-needed presence and physicality to Chelsea’s midfield.

Meanwhile, Liverpool also need to add more depth to their midfield. Players like Jordan Henderson and Fabinho have struggled this season, and Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are feared.

Opportunities to join Chelsea or Liverpool this month could be too good for the player to turn down, and if a concrete offer is presented, he is likely to be interested.
