Liverpool transfer news – Competition from Newcastle for Sander Berge
According to the Mirror, Newcastle have now joined Liverpool and Chelsea in the race to sign Sander Berge.
Berge has an astonishing midfield presence, he is tall and uses his physical presence well. Berge ages at just 24 years old and is entering the final stages of his Sheffield United contract, so the Blades may feel inclined to sell him this January, before his price drops.
Liverpool transfer news – Reds to pay Ousmane Dembele’s release clause
According to Calcio Mercato, Liverpool are considering paying Ousmane Dembele’s release clause, which is rumoured to be around £44m.
There are complications to the deal, though. Ousmane Dembele is currently injured, and sidelined for the next month. Furthermore, with FSG selling the club, questions are being asked whether they would be willing to splash out £44m on a release clause. Still, the deal has potential.
