Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic could be sold this summer, according to Goal.
The Serbian international has been out on loan at Hertha Berlin this season and by all accounts has done pretty well for the Bundesliga outfit.
He has made 19 appearances across all competitions and scored four times.
Grujic has impressed, and the club’s manager recently told Index, as quoted by The Daily Star: “This is the first time in my life when I didn’t have to settle with the middle shelf of the supermarket, instead I was able reach the top shelf.
“This is the first time I have a player like him, unfortunately only on loan from Liverpool.”
Grujic is seemingly progressing nicely, but there are a host of midfield options back at his parent club available to Jurgen Klopp.
It is difficult to imagine where he might get any game time next season, hence the report linking him with a move away.
Liverpool fans react
Grujic has only made 14 appearances for the Reds since joining in 2016, and it would seem fans would like to see him be given a chance to add to that tally.
A number took to social media to express their disappointment over Goal’s report he is being considered for a transfer alongside a number of other fringe players:
Think I’d keep Grujic and Wilson tbh. Possibly Matip as a back up too but yeh plenty there that we could reinvest.

I hope we hold on to Grujic and Wilson.

Think it would be a mistake to sell Grujic; think Camacho’s versatility could be useful in the first-team too. Could understand us accepting a big offer for Wilson. Not mentioned here but have a feeling Shaqiri might be allowed to go for the right offer too. #LFC https://t.co/lLVdmLLc2H

In no way should Wilson or Grujic be getting sold this summer. #LFC

Selling Kent, Ojo and Awoniyi is the right decision as they’re unlikely to make it at the top-level.
A shame to see Wilson and Grujic available as well though – especially Grujic. Could have offered good squad depth next season, hope they get a chance in pre-season at least.

Wilson isn’t good enough but Grujic certainly has something

BRING BACK GRUJIC NEXT SEASON.

Sell them all, bar Grujic. He can either play a part for us or fetch more money down the line after another impressive loan https://t.co/AsLSFaXqRH

I’d be disappointed if we sold Grujic, would be a very useful player in the midfield as a backup, Wilson too. If we get a very tempting offer which we have been successful in doing so, then so be it.

If Grujic or Wilson are sold there will be riots
