According to a report on The Sun, the Blues are interested in signing 21-year-old Norwegian midfielder Sander Berge from Belgian side Genk.

Berge has been one of Genk’s best players in the Champions League this season and Premier League rivals Liverpool and Italian club Napoli are also interested in the 21 year old midfielder.

Genk’s sporting director Dimitri De Conde recently suggested Liverpool and Napoli are strong favourites to sign the midfielder.

He told Radio Punto Nuovo: “Napoli are interested in Sander, it’s a possibility a deal could be done.

“We also know that Liverpool are interested and [Jurgen] Klopp, after the game at Anfield (in the Champions League) complimented him on his performance.

“There are clubs in Italy who are following Berge and Napoli could be one of them, but at this stage, there are no offers on the table. From next week, things could change. We haven’t had any official contact with Napoli yet.”
