An update regarding a potential outing at Liverpool has surfaced on Sunday.
Van den Berg’s Liverpool stint
Sepp van den Berg joined Liverpool in the summer of 2019.
The centre-back would make the switch from Dutch outfit PEC Zwolle for a fee believed to be around £1.7m.
The now 19-year-old has since gone on to become a regular feature in Liverpool’s under-23 side, notching 21 appearances and scoring one goal.
However, the Dutchman has been afforded very little first-team action since moving to England.
Van den Berge would make his senior Liverpool debut back in September of 2019, coming off the bench for one minute vs MK Dons in the League Cup.
Van den Berg was then afforded starts in Liverpool’s following two LC ties that season vs Arsenal and Aston Villa, with the Reds losing the latter of those games 5-0.
Van den Berg’s final appearance of 2019/20 for Liverpool’s first-team saw him complete 90 minutes in the FA Cup vs Shrewsbury.
Van den Berg to be loaned out
This season, though, van den Berg is yet to make a single appearance for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
This may be something of a shock to Liverpool fans given Liverpool are extremely light at centre-back of late due to long term injuries to both Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
Joel Matip has also struggled for fitness recently, leading to Klopp even opting to play midfielders Fabinho and Jordan Henderson as a centre-back pairing on occasion.
Now, after failing to gain any minutes during the first half of 2020/21, van den Berg looks set to depart Anfield on loan.
According to a recent report from Goal, Liverpool have held talks with three clubs over a potential loan move for van den Berg.
It is added that discussions are said to have already taken place with sides in Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, with a deal likely to be agreed this week.
