Liverpool may have been handed a further boost in the chase for Sander Berge with the midfielder having a relegation-related clause in his contract that could make him extra available this summer transfer window.
Sheffield United had their relegation back to the Championship confirmed a couple of weeks ago and a rebuild at Bramall Lane will need to happen in the summer.
Indeed, there is a good chance that key assets are going to be sold to help that along and Berge is one player who fits that description.
According to The Athletic, Liverpool are interested in the player and have been handed a boost by the news that there is a clause in his contract that upon relegation a fee can be paid to get him in.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
It remains to be seen what fee, of course, but this is certainly potentially good news for Liverpool as they hunt new additions in the summer.
Right now, Berge is just another player to be linked with the Reds but it could well pick up pace in the summer if the Blades are looking to try and cash in on him.
