First summer signing confirmed

Liverpool have confirmed that Sepp van den Berg has joined the club from PEC Zwolle. The deal will be completed in July subject to international clearance. “It’s just an amazing feeling. It is, for me, the biggest club in the world and it’s a dream come true. I am really excited,” said the 17-year-old.

Liverpool had talked about Llorente

According to Julio Llorente, the agent of former Real Madrid player Marcos Llorente, he had been in contact with the Merseyside club before the 24-year-old’s move to Atletico. Julio and the Reds had discussed the midfielder, but Liverpool stated that he was not a priority.
