Liverpool are not looking to send out attacking duo Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic away on another loan spell next season and instead will look to sell according to The Mirror.
It is claimed that the Reds are looking for around £40 million for the two players who recently returned from loan spells at AFC Bournemouth and Hertha Berlin respectively.
Both Liverpool stars impressed on their sabbaticals away from Anfield and the club may feel that there is enough value in both players to raise funds this summer.
Grujic, 24, was Jurgen Klopp’s first-ever signing as Liverpool manager and the Serbian international recently linked up with the first-team at a pre-season training camp in Austria following a two-year loan period in the Bundesliga.
Since signing in 2016, Grujic has been limited to just 14 appearances and considering Liverpool’s already stocked options in midfield it is difficult to see the returning loanee make an impact next season.
However, there is a silver lining for both the player and Liverpool. Grujic scored nine goals in 54 appearances for Hertha during his time in Germany, and was called “by far the club’s best midfielder in the past 20 years” by his former coach Pal Dardai during his first season in the German capital – this will certainly enable the Reds to command a respectable price-tag for the Serb.
According to the report, Liverpool will not budge on their £20 million valuation and are confident a number of suitors will showcase an interest.
Wilson has also been listed at a similar price following two largely impressive loan spells with Bournemouth and Derby County.
The Wales international is nursing an injury so is unable to be a part of Liverpool’s pre-season preparations that are currently underway in Salzburg.
The 23-year-old is expected to return for the Community Shield clash at Wembley against Arsenal on August 29 which could be set to be Wilson’s final competitive match for the Reds.
