Marko Grujic, Jurgen Klopp’s first signing as Liverpool manager, may be leaving the club permanently this summer.
According to BILD, Hertha Berlin are looking to sign the midfielder on a permanent deal worth around €14.5 million.
Grujic has played his last two seasons of football for Hertha Berlin on loan.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
We were quite excited when Grujic first signed for Liverpool, as he had just won the under-20 World Cup with Serbia.
His current contract lasts until 2023, so Liverpool are in a strong position if they want to keep him.
But, we believe that Grujic’s future lies elsewhere. Fourteen appearances for Liverpool’s first XI in four years says enough.
A move to Hertha Berlin would be very good for both sides. Liverpool will gain some money and Grujic will go on to play regularly.
Grujic made 29 appearances in the Bundesliga for Hertha Berlin last season.
