The young Serbian international posted a non-committal message on Instagram as his season on loan with Hertha Berlin ended.
After an impressive season in the Bundesliga, Grujic has attracted a degree of interest from potential new clubs.
In a post on Instagram, Grujic gave nothing away but refused to get enthusiastic about committing to Liverpool.

As the summer transfer window gets into full swing, rumours continue to surround potential incomings at Anfield.
Klopp has remained reserved as ever in terms of transfer targets, but you can be sure he will strengthen again.
And with potential incomings, you can be certain that Klopp will be looking to offload some players too.
Grujic was Klopp’s first signing as Liverpool manager in 2016, but has seen his game time for the Reds severely limited.
This combined with the fact that he’s impressed this season point towards a future away from Anfield for Grujic.
He is coming to the point in his career when he needs consistent game time in order to develop further.
Grujic has always played bit-part roles at Liverpool, and hasn’t been doing enough to convince Klopp to think otherwise.
Whereas in Berlin, he’s been front and centre, and earning lots of praise from his manager in the process.
He simply isn’t going to get the chance to play such an important role at Liverpool considering the current competition.
Even if Klopp doesn’t make any signings, Grujic is already behind Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Fabinho, Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain at Liverpool.
If Klopp decides to add another option to his midfield this summer, Grujic’s role further diminishes, limiting his chances more.
When it comes down to it, Grujic hasn’t done enough after three years, so it’s time to move on.
While his stock is high after a solid season, both Grujic and Liverpool should be looking to cash in.
For Liverpool, it makes financial sense to offload him for as much money as possible to sell him now.
And for Grujic, it makes sense for his career to move on and try new things and aid his development.
