Newcastle has joined Liverpool in the race to sign Sheffield midfielder Sander Berge.

According to recent reports, Newcastle United have entered the race to sign Sheffield United midfielder Sander Berge. The Mirror states that Chelsea, Liverpool, and AC Milan are also interested in the Norwegian international, who may be available for a transfer fee of around £15 million.

The 24 years old midfielder joined Sheffield United in January 2020 for a reported fee of £22 million, but with just 18 months remaining on his contract, the Blades may be forced to sell before his value decreases. Berge has made 87 appearances for Sheffield United, scoring 12 goals and providing 9 assists.

The 6ft 5in midfielder began his career with Asker in his native Norway before moving to Valerenga and Belgian side Genk. His performances with Genk caught the attention of major Premier League clubs before Sheffield United secured his signature.

Berge’s performances for Sheffield United have been impressive and it’s clear that he is too good for the Championship, which makes it likely he will be back in the Premier League soon, whether it’s with Sheffield United or a transfer to another club.

Sheffield United will be hoping to hold on to the midfielder until the end of the season, but with so much interest in the midfielder, it may be difficult to fend off potential bids in the upcoming transfer window.

It will be interesting to see where Berge will end up in the next transfer window, but with Chelsea, Liverpool, and Newcastle United all showing interest, it’s clear that he is a highly sought-after talent in the world of football.
