According to reports emerging from the Netherlands, PSV winger Steven Bergwijn has caught the eye of several big Premier League clubs, with Manchester United and Liverpool both said to be interested in the youngster. The Reds even sent scouts to PSV’s recent Champions League game against Inter (the one they lost 2-1 after leading 1-0)
There were reports that Bergwijn, who at 21, is already considered to be a similar player to Sadio Mane, had a 20 million euro release clause, but Dutch sources have claimed that to be untrue, meaning that any potential suitors would have to stump up more than just 20 million- a steal in the current market for a player of his potential.
Liverpool of course do have two Dutch starters in their XI in the form of Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum, and that could influence Bergwijn’s choice of destination should he decide to move. The 21 year old has completed more dribbles any other side in the Eredivisie in the current 18/19 season.
Liverpool had a fantastic start to the season, but as seen on LFC Zone, have slowed down a bit, drawing with Man City and losing to Napoli in the Champions League. Jurgen Klopp’s men will again look to lay down a marker when the Reds met Huddersfield after the international break this weekend.
