Liverpool are going to offload a number of players this summer. We need to sell to buy, departures are necessary. According to reports in Germany, Hertha Berlin want to sign Marko Grujic.
Marko Grujic at Liverpool
Marko Grujic was Jürgen Klopp’s first signing back in 2016.
The Reds agreed a £5.1m fee for the Serbian midfielder, then aged 19-years-old.
He had been likened to Steven Gerrard and with the Reds looking to find a replacement for Captain Fantastic fans were expectant.
Since arriving on Merseyside he’s been unable to nail down a starting berth at Anfield.

The Serbian was sent on loan to Cardiff City before a two year spell at Hertha Berlin. He spent this season at Porto.
Hertha Berlin want Marko Grujic
This will see the Serbian midfielder leave Liverpool on a permanent deal.
According to Tag24 in Germany, Hertha Berlin want to sign Marko Grujic.
The outlet has claimed that the player fits the club well and understands head coach Pal Dardai’s playing philosophy.
Tag24 has claimed that the Serbian’s price tag has dropped to around €15m (£13m).
However, it is unclear whether the Berlin club could afford the deal even after the discount.
What RTK has to say
Marko Grujic being sold this summer would be a big boost for Michael Edwards.
The sporting director needs to raise all of the funds he can.
We have plenty of business to do and will need money to do it.
The Serbian could be one of our most lucrative sales this summer, links to both Hertha and Porto make for promising reading.
