Report: Sheffield United star wants Premier League move, amid new interest from Liverpool

Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge is keen on playing Premier League football once again, amid reported interest from Liverpool.

Reports over the weekend from France claimed that both Chelsea and Liverpool were once again keen on landing Berge in January. Jeunes Footeux made the claim, suggesting that Berge remained on the list of the Premier League giants.

Since then, in terms of Liverpool anyway, links to Berge have been played down. However, despite this, Yorkshire Live reports that Berge is indeed keen on playing in the Premier League if he is to move.

Yorkshire Live cites how Berge had little interest in joining Club Brugge last summer, who were said to be closest to doing a deal to sign Berge. Instead, the Norwegian has his eyes on a return to the PL. And while he is ‘relaxed’ over his future at United and not pushing for a move, the likes of Liverpool are clubs that interest him.

Berge, along with the likes of Iliman Ndiaye and Anel Ahmedhodzic, is seen as one of the players United could potentially lose in January.

Paul Heckingbottom is said to have told the board to resist any bids for his best players. However, there is a realisation within the club that if mega money comes in, then bids will need to be considered.

We wrote in our report earlier about Chris Wilder’s prediction on Iliman Ndiaye how we hope the forward gives us until the summer. And the feeling with Sander Berge is very much the same.

Berge is so good that he is integral to United winning promotion. If he can stay fit, then along with Ndiaye, he can fire United into the top two. With that in mind, he’s a player who the board and Heckingbottom need to be convincing to give us another six months. If we don’t then go up, then they’re free to move on if they want.

It’s going to be a tricky January for United. But sitting in the top two and with a strong squad more than capable of promotion, hopefully the likes of Berge will see more benefit in staying put than pushing to move.
