Liverpool transfer news latest: Sepp van den Berg, Nicolas Pepe, Nabil Fekir, Sebastiano Esposito and more
All the latest transfer goings-on at Anfield
Liverpool have confirmed their first signing of the transfer window with the arrival of Dutch defender Sepp van den Berg for £1.3m.
The 17-year-old has signed a long-term deal at Anfield, with the Reds fending off competition from Bayern Munich and Ajax for the youngster’s signature.
Speaking on his move from PEC Zwolle, van den Berg said: “It’s just an amazing feeling. It is, for me, the biggest club in the world and it’s a dream come true.”
Elsewhere, Nicolas Pepe is reportedly still attracting attention, with the Daily Record’s Duncan Castles claiming that there is still “hope” for a deal to bring him to Liverpool. It had been reported that Inter Milan had lodged a £72m bid for the winger but Castles has quashed those rumours.
Lyon manager Bruno Genesio has said that one-time Liverpool target Nabil Fekir was left “very frustrated with his non-transfer to Liverpool” last season. The Frenchman’s move to Anfield collapsed at the 11th hour last term.
Liverpool are also keeping tabs on Inter Milan youngster Sebastiano Esposito, who has also piqued the interests of Manchester City and PSG, according to Inside Futbol.
Ryan Kent’s hopes of rejoining Rangers on loan next season have been dealt a blow, with Liverpool reportedly only interested in sanctioning a permanent deal for the 22-year-old.
