Sander Berge has the talent to play many roles in midfield.

According to Tribalfootball, “Chelsea are keeping tabs on Genk whizkid Sander Berge. Liverpool and Napoli maintain a strong interest in the 21-year-old. Genk expect Berge to depart with just 18 months of his contract. Goal says Chelsea have now joined the race for Berge’s coveted signature.
