According to reports from The Mirror, Liverpool could be planning to offload two of their returning loanees in the form of Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic.

Harry Wilson leaves the pitch.

Wilson, 23, will return to pre-season in a few weeks time following on from a year-long loan spell with AFC Bournemouth – who were recently relegated to the Championship.

Grujic, 24, is another returning player following a two-season loan with Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin.

Collectively both players have clocked up just 15 appearances for Liverpool over the past four years (Grujic 14, Wilson one) and are at a crossroads in their careers which could give the Reds incentive to cash in while they can.

Liverpool have a tight and congested schedule between now and the beginning of the 2020/21 season which means that both Wilson and Grujic will have limited time in pre-season to convince Jurgen Klopp that their futures could still remain at Anfield.

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, where the attacking duo would have traditionally been offered minutes in the initial pre-season friendlies, those matches will now be used to get first-team stars back up to full speed with the PL set to return on September 12.

Fixtures against local sides have been scheduled but both players will likely struggle to get minutes with the pair seemingly far down in the pecking order regarding Klopp’s list of player priorities.

The Mirror have reported that even despite the ongoing global pandemic and economic uncertainty that Liverpool are hoping to command around £20 million for Wilson while Grujic is valued at a similar price.

Following the report, a number of Liverpool supporters have taken to social media to give their verdict on the potential club outgoings.

Here are a selected number of responses following Grujic and Wilson’s imminent reported departures…
