Report: Liverpool want to sell Grujic
Liverpool want to sell Marko Grujic this transfer window after the midfielder’s loan spell at Porto last season.
According to Berliner Kurier, Hertha Berlin are interested in signing the Serbia international.
Grujic spent the 2019/2020 season on loan with the Bundesliga outfi. However, the Merseysiders claimed they didn’t want to let the ace leave on a permanent deal at the end of his loan spell.
It seems as though the Reds’ stance has changed with regards to Grujic, who could leave this summer on a permanent deal.
Porto were offered the chance to sign the 25-year-old, but, a deal is yet to be concluded.
Grujic has rarely featured for his parent club since his move from Red Star Belgrade back in 2016. The midfielder has played just 16 times, scoring and asssiting once.
Former Hertha manager Pal Darida claimed the ace can play ‘anywhere in midfielder’.
Liverpool lose value: Grujic transfer should’ve happened earlier
Grujic enjoyed a brilliant time with Hertha Berlin during his spell at the club two seasons ago.
Liverpool’s failure to sell the player meant his value has now decreased after his poor time with Porto.
The Serbian played just 1759 minutes for the Liga NOS giants across all competitions. Most of his appearances came off the bench as he struggled to break into the starting XI.
At the height of his time with the Old Lady his value stood at £18m, according to Transfermarkt. However, it has since dropped down to £13.5m.
The move to keep Grujic rather than sell him last summer proves baffling. He was never going to breakthrough into the first-team due to the quality Jurgen Klopp’s side possessed.
The German even added Thiago Alcantara to the ranks furthering diminishing Grujic’s hopes of making a mark.
But, the side still retained the player.
His drop in value is the club’s fault. However, with the outfit in desperate need of finances, selling the ace could fund some important transfers this summer.
