Liverpool have been known to sign players from relegated clubs on cheap deals. Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle, Andy Robertson from Hull City, Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke to name a few. With news of Jurgen Klopp's interest, another name could be added to the long list of players signed from relegated clubs. 

According to Dean Jones, Liverpool are "contemplating" a move for Sheffield United's Sander Berge. The Norwegian international joined the relegation bound club last January in a £22 million move. 

After moving to the Premier League club, he immediately became Sheffield United's club record signing and joined on a four and a half year contract.

Sheffield United have recently parted ways Chris Wilder and look set to be relegated to the English Football League Championship as they sit bottom of the Premier League with just 14 points thus far. 

The report claims that the 23 year old will have plenty of interest with Aston Villa, Manchester United and Liverpool all interested in his services. 

With Georginio Wijnaldum rumoured with an Anfield exit, Jurgen Klopp has set his eyes on Sander Berge as the perfect replacement for the Dutchman. 

The former Genk midfielder has made just 14 appearances this year after undergoing surgery in December to fix a tendon in his leg. Of those 14 appearances, 13 are in the Premier league where he scored one goal and added one assist. 

Alongside Sander Berge, Liverpool have been linked with Rodrigo de Paul as a possible Wijnaldum replacement. Who would you rather the Reds sign?
