Liverpool have been making some decisive moves in the transfer market recently. The academy boys have also been impressing the gaffer in the past year. This has led to a wealth of talent in the Reds’ first team squad, as a result some fringe players are having to be moved on. According to a report in Kicker, Marko Grujic has changed agents and Liverpool are pushing for a move.
Marko Grujic at Liverpool
Marko Grujic was the first signing of the Jürgen Klopp era, agreeing a deal to join the Reds in January 2016.
The Serbian arrived on Merseyside in the summer of that year with Kopites drooling over his potential, James Pearce compared him to Steven Gerrard.
The midfielder didn’t break into the Reds’ first team and was subsequently loaned out to Cardiff City and Hertha Berlin, spending two seasons in the German capital.
The club are now reportedly unwilling to let him leave on a temporary basis again, deciding to sell him if he isn’t to stay with the first team squad this term.
Marko Grujic changes agents
According to Kicker, Marko Grujic has changed agents. His previous representative is quoted as saying that Liverpool weren’t willing to let the Serbian leave until January at the earliest.
Since the switch, Liverpool are said to have sent signals to interested parties in an effort to push a sale.
The Reds are claimed to be willing to accept a deal in the region of £18.25m+, not a bad return on their investment by any means.
What RTK has to say
Marko Grujic needs to leave Liverpool for the good of his career. He has fallen right down the pecking order with the arrival of Thiago and the ascendancy of Curtis Jones.
He is at a stage now where he needs to stop going on loan after loan and instead find a more permanent home.
He has the talent, just not enough talent to be playing in a world champion Liverpool side.
