Left-back dreams of Liverpool move Who? Nimes Olympique and Norway left-back Birger Meling What? Nimes Olympique defender Meling reportedly dreams of playing for Liverpool. A recent profile in French outlet L'Equipe, via Sport Witness, outlined Meling's dreams of playing for Liverpool as a kid. Meling was extremely small for his age, however, and had to drop down an age division in the youth ranks. He endured a difficult year in Middlesbrough's youth set up during the 2013/14 season and returned to Norway. He has since rebuilt his career and is now performing well in Ligue 1 having settled into a left-back position. Whether a move for Liverpool is on the cards, however, remains a long shot.
