Genk sporting director Dimitri De Conde confirms that Liverpool will closely monitor the progress of midfielder Sander Berge.

Genk sporting director Dimitri De Conde has suggested that Liverpool will closely monitor the progress of midfielder Sander Berge ahead of next summer.

The 21-year-old has impressed many since making his debut for the Belgian side in 2016 and was one of the club's standout players in back-to-back Champions League games against Liverpool this season.

Reports have suggested that Napoli are leading the race for the youngster, who is valued at around £18m.

De Conde told Radio Punto Nuovo: "If Napoli has already blocked Berge? I read it and it's not like that. Napoli are interested in Sander and it's a possibility.

"We also know Liverpool follow him carefully. [Jurgen] Klopp spoke to the boy after the Anfield game, congratulating him on the performance."

Berge has a contract that expires in the summer of 2021 and Genk are determined to keep the player until next summer.

Reports have stated that Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are also keeping a close eye on the Norway international.
