Liverpool have been watching PSV Eindhoven youngster Steven Bergwijn.

That’s according to a report by Sport, in which they claim that the club sent a scout to Holland to watch the twenty-one year old in action this weekend.

Bergwijn has found the net fourteen times for the Eredivisie champions since making his debut four years ago and is starting to attract interest from around the continent.

He has a reported £17.6m release clause in his contract with PSV and that could see plenty of clubs lining up in order to try and lure him away from the Dutch side.

Premier League rivals Manchester United also had a representative present in the stadium – but he may well have been there to watch Mexico international Hirving Lozano, who was also linked with a move to Anfield in the Summer following a productive World Cup.

PSV manager, and former Holland international midfielder, has backed the under-21 player to keep himself grounded despite all the speculation about interest from top clubs.

“Steven has very sensible people around him.” he said.

“His parents are real example parents, in the way they deal with him.

“We talked well together during the summer. I think it’s really great. Perhaps already a top European player. Yes, already.” he finished.

Liverpool supporters will be checking out videos of the young Dutchman online following this link, no doubt.
