Van den Berg transfer talks & chairman causes outrage – Latest Liverpool FC News

Sepp van den Berg looks to be edging closer to a permanent move to Mainz, while Tom Werner has made admissions that will anger Liverpool supporters.

 

Van den Berg reportedly in talks

It’s easy to forget that Van den Berg is still a Liverpool player, considering he hasn’t represented them since February 2020.

A permanent move away looks highly likely this summer, though, and journalist Florian Plettenberg claims that “negotiations” between the Reds and Mainz have got underway.

Van den Berg spent the 2023/24 season on loan at the German side and all parties appear to be happy to see him move there for the foreseeable future.

This Is Anfield understands Liverpool want £20 million for him, with Southampton and Brentford also interested.

Should the 22-year-old leave Liverpool, he will depart with just four first-team appearances to his name.
