Newcastle United should always be on the search for bargains in the transfer market given the club’s lack of spending over the years and there are still some top deals around.
The Magpies should turn their gaze on Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic, who is currently on a season-long loan spell at German club Hertha Berlin.
According to the Sun, Liverpool could be prepared to offload the Sebia international for just £4.5million on a permanent basis.
Rafael Benitez’s side should consider putting in the groundwork to bring him to St James’ Park next summer for a potentially bargain fee, as he’s got immense potential.
Grujic has been unable to cut the grade at Anfield since he joined in 2016 and is out on loan for his third spell this campaign.
But the 22-year-old central midfielder is a technically gifted ace with a great range of passing and he helped Cardiff City earn promotion from the Championship last season during his loan stint.
He is now an important feature for seventh-placed Hertha in the Bundesliga and appears to be going from strength to strength.
Grujic is a versatile ace that started his career more as an advanced playmaker that can score goals, but is gradually dropping into a deeper role in the centre of the park.
The Serbian is a tough tackling enforcer that could add real bite at St James’ Park and it would make sense for Newcastle to try snap him up if he becomes available for a minimal fee.
