However it appears that evidently Berge might stay within the Premier League after catching Klopp’s eye.
Voetbal24 declare that the German boss is ‘completely satisfied’ of Berge’s talent and believes he could be a really perfect acquisition this summer time.
The Reds will want reinforcements in midfield with Georginio Wijnaldum set to leave the membership on the end of the season.

Nevertheless, the report claims Liverpool will face competition for his signature, with Aston Villa credited with interest, whereas Arsenal and Tottenham have additionally been linked within the past.
Within the meantime, John Barnes claims Liverpool aren’t “willing to offer” a long-term deal for Wijnaldum now that he has turned 30.
Barnes said: “Georginio Wijnaldum doesn’t disagree with the membership about cash along with his new contract, he’s on the lookout for a longer-term deal. He’s now 30 so he thinks for himself and his household in the long term.
“The contract disagreement is nothing private between him and the membership, he’s a player trying to take cost of his career and Liverpool will respect it, but when they don’t seem to be willing to offer a three or 4 deal years into it, there could also be one other membership in Europe.
“When a player enters his 30s, the membership should assume he’s just above his prime, or in his prime however about to leave his prime. If it calls for a contract of a sure variety of years, it implies that a membership pays a player some huge cash to not play that, after they could possibly be spending their cash on a 25-year-old man, who might deserve that cash .
“Liverpool might want him to stay, and he desires to stay in Liverpool, however the membership has to consider the players’ future and can’t offer a 4 year deal to a 30 year old player.”
