Werder Bremen are pursuing a two-year loan deal to sign Marko Grujic this summer, according to Mein Werder, as the Serbian is yet to break into Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The German news outlet reports that although negotiations are ‘extremely complex’, Bremen believe they have a very good chance of luring Grujic to the club this summer.
Jurgen Klopp is a big admirer of Bremen manager Florian Kohfeldt, Mein Bremen claims.
For Liverpool, who still have Grujic tied to a contract that expires in 2023, the 23-year-old is an interesting prospect as he has the potential to be a very good player but hasn’t shown the form required to earn a starting role at Anfield.
When he arrived at Liverpool a year after being signed and loaned back to Red Star Belgrade, the Serbian impressed supporters with his huge frame and apparent eye for goal.
He scored several goals in pre-season before the start of the 2015/16 season, including a fabulous looping header against Barcelona during a 4-1 rout at Wembley Stadium.
Unfortunately for Grujic, there are several midfielders that are ahead of him in the Anfield pecking order, making it hugely likely that he will be sent out on loan again in order to find regular game time.
The former Red Star Belgrade midfielder will likely be sold eventually as the progress that Liverpool have made under Klopp is such that Grujic isn’t a suitable fit.
He would make a good squad player but is perhaps too good for such a role.
