iverpool have won the race to sign Dutch teenager Sepp van den Berg, with the defender due to undergo a medical on Wednesday ahead of a £1.79million move.

Bayern Munich and Ajax were both desperate to sign Van Den Berg, but Liverpool have convinced the Holland under-19 international to move to Anfield from PEC Zwolle.

The 17-year-old will become Liverpool’s first signing of the summer and is expected to spend next season acclimatising and learning before trying to make an impression on the first-team squad.
