Three Bundesliga outfits have approached Liverpool regarding their interest in signing Marko Grujic this summer, as per Goal.
They say that Hertha Berlin want to sign the Serbian permanently after they enjoyed his talents during a loan spell last season while Eintracht Frankfurt also maintain an interest in signing Grujic.
Frankfurt are reportedly keen on signing him permanently and after selling Luka Jovic to Real Madrid, they have the money required to fund a move in excess of £25million.
Meanwhile, Goal also add that an “unnamed Premier League club has also enquired about the possibility” of signing the Serbian this summer, with Atletico Madrid mentioned as a potential destination.
While it would have been great to see Grujic given more of a chance at the club, selling him will be helpful in funding moves for the likes of Nicolas Pepe if the Reds’ reported interest is genuine.
Having been named European Champions last month, it’s clear that Jurgen Klopp needs to continue to deliver silverware at Anfield otherwise he will be questioned.
The result of this is that fringe players will no longer have a place at the club as Klopp will be unable to experiment with different lineups as he had the freedom to do in the first 18 months of his Liverpool career.
