Liverpool face challenge to sign PEC Zwolle whizkid van den Berg

Liverpool are hopeful they can complete the signing of PEC Zwolle youngster Sepp van den Berg, according to Goal.

The Reds face stiff competition from a host of clubs, including Bayern Munich, Ajax, PSV Eindhoven and Sampdoria.

The latter reportedly was rejected in January with an offer of €2.5m for the Dutch U19 star.

Van den Berg enjoyed a breakthrough year at Zwolle last season, playing 16 Eredivisie games under Jaap Stam.

It is believed the 17-year-old would go into Liverpool's academy set-up initially.

The Merseyside outfit have achieved success with another Dutch teenager, Ki-Jana Hoover, who excelled at Anfield after arriving from Ajax last summer.
