One player who has been less successful than the rest looks set to leave on loan again. The Evening Standard has claimed that Werder Bremen are leading the chase for Marko Grujic.

Grujic at Liverpool

Liverpool signed Marko Grujic from Red Star Belgrade back in 2016.

The Serbian midfielder was the first signing of the Jürgen Klopp era. Fans were excited for his arrival, he was frequently compared to Steven Gerrard.

Having failed to break into the first team, the youngster was loaned out to Cardiff City and Hertha Berlin.

Grujic ended up spending two seasons in the German capital with moderate success in the German Bundesliga.

The German side are said to be looking to conclude a loan deal for the Serbian midfielder before the window closes.

It is also claimed that Grujic is keen on the move back to Germany. Bremen are currently 7th in the table after winning two and losing one.

What RTK has to say

This would be a good move for the Serbian, he would be getting regular first team football again, aiding his development.

However, the Reds will be disappointed to be seeing him leave on loan when it appeared that earlier on in the window this wasn’t an option.

There were numerous reports suggesting that if Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic were to leave the club it would have to be on a permanent basis.

Given the impact of the global health crisis it looks as though clubs don’t have the money to be throwing at the Reds’ fringe players.
