Liverpool have some big decisions to make ahead of the new season – who stays, who goes? The Reds have a squad stacked with talent, perhaps overstacked. With a number of players back at the club following loan moves Jürgen Klopp will have to decide who is in his first team plans and who needs to be moved on. According to Goal there are seven teams interested in Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic.
Next Gerrard promise
Liverpool agreed a deal to sign Marko Grujic in January 2016, making him Jürgen Klopp’s first addition.
At 19-years-old he arrived from Red Star Belgrade full of promise but he was soon loaned out to Cardiff City then Hertha Berlin having failed to put himself in the first team picture.
Liverpool have seven Gujic suitors
According to Goal there are no less than seven clubs turning to Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic.
The Serbian midfielder has spent the past two seasons on loan at Hertha Berlin and there doesn’t appear to be space for him in the Reds’ first team, prompting interest from across Europe.
Goal believe that Hertha Berlin, Borussia Monchengladbach, Eintracht Frankfurt, Werder Bremen, Atalanta, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are interested in the midfielder.
The report states that the Reds would demand £20m for the Serbian box-to-box player and are uninterested in another loan move.
Reds surely have to sell
Liverpool surely have to sell Marko Grujic this summer.
The Serbian doesn’t seem to have a future in the Reds’ first team given the mountain of talent already at the club, he doesn’t appear up to the task of dislodging Naby Keita or Gini Wijnaldum and with Curtis Jones emerging his task is even harder.
Liverpool selling Marko Grujic would help raise funds for investing depth throughout the squad, the Reds could do with another forward and a fourth choice centre half.
Not selling the midfielder this summer would only mean selling him for less money in future, we need to cash in whilst we can.
