Selling £25m-rated maestro could be a costly Liverpool mistake

Marko Grujic could leave the Reds during the next transfer window.

Liverpool fans could be in for an exciting summer as boss Jurgen Klopp tries to add to his already dominant group of players.

Last season’s Champions League triumph will probably be topped with a first Premier League crown when football resumes.

With that in mind, Klopp will face another challenge next season when his team become the team every other club wants to beat.

Several top players have already been loosely linked with a move to Anfield; Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Jadon Sancho’s names simply refuse to go away.

The likes of Adam Lallana, Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi could all depart to free up some space in Klopp’s squad.

Another fringe player has been linked with a departure and that could represent a mistake from a Liverpool perspective.

Marko Grujic was Klopp’s first signing as the club’s manager but after just 14 appearances he could be offloaded.

Reports have claimed that Liverpool will listen to offers for the midfielder after he has spent the last two seasons on loan with Hertha Berlin.

 

The Reds could land themselves £25 million by selling the 23-year-old and if they can get that fee if might not be bad business.

Quality

Grujic has never been given a fair crack of the whip by Klopp though and selling him could prove a long-term mistake.

Liverpool’s midfield boasts lots of steel and determination but there is perhaps a lack of a real creative spark.

If Liverpool sell him this summer they’ll never get a glimpse of what he has learnt out on loan and that might prove a mistake.

Grujic can pass, is mobile and he’s not afraid to take a forward-thinking stance in his play.

Given his success, nobody will argue with Klopp but the Serbian maestro might become one that got away for Liverpool.
