After a breakthrough loan with Preston in the Championship, spending 18 months at Deepdale in total, Van den Berg is set to return to Liverpool this pre-season.
The 20-year-old is likely to join up with the first-team squad at the AXA Training Centre on July 4, with assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders eager to monitor his development.
But the decision appears to have already been made when it comes to Van den Berg’s next step, with it widely reported that he is in line for another loan move.
Among those are clubs in the English top flight, with sides in the Bundesliga and LaLiga also interested in bringing the youngster in for the campaign.
Last summer, the level of interest in Van den Berg was from the Championship, along with clubs in Switzerland, Germany and Belgium, with it clear he is now ready to progress.
There is still a chance, of course, that he is retained for the new season at Liverpool, with a spot likely reserved for a fifth-choice centre-back.
Billy Koumetio has already joined Austrian Wien on a season-long loan, as one of four players to depart on temporary deals so far.
Goalkeeper Jakub Ojrzynski (Radomiak Radom), right-back Conor Bradley (Bolton) and left-back Adam Lewis (Newport County) have also left.
