Goals. Liverpool need more goals. We don’t have a natural finisher in the side, an out and out striker. The Reds also have a number of players to move on this summer. As a result it makes sense that O Jogo has reported that Liverpool have offered Marko Grujic in a swap deal for Donyell Malen.
Marko Grujic time up
Marko Grujic was the first signing of the Jürgen Klopp era.
In January 2016 the Reds agreed a £5.1m fee with Red Star Belgrade for their promising young midfielder.
In the years since the Serbian has been sent on a number of loan moves, joining Cardiff City, Hertha Berlin and most recently Porto.
This summer will likely see the midfielder moved on with The Transfer Window Podcast claiming that the Reds want £17m for the 25-year-old.
Liverpool offer Marko Grujic for Donyell Malen
Liverpool are thought to be determined to sign a forward this summer.
We need quality in depth and competition in the attacking line.
James Pearce recently claimed that Liverpool admire Donyell Malen and initial enquiries have been made.
O Jogo has now claimed that Liverpool have offered Marko Grujic in a swap deal for Donyell Malen.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool using Grujic to land Malen would be a dream.
The striker netted 19 goals last term and at just 22-years-old he has plenty of time to improve.
Using an unwanted fringe player to lower the price could be a stroke of genius by Michael Edwards.
Furthermore, it could help us edge out competition from Borussia Dortmund.
