Liverpool are willing to try and sell Marko Grujic this summer transfer window in order to raise funds for their own signings ahead of 2021/22.
The Reds have had it tough this season and current form could leave them outside of the top four and, of course, the Champions League places.
Indeed, that, combined with the last year nearly, will create a vacuum when it comes to finances and it could well be the case the Reds need to sell first before they can buy.
Fringe players could be for the chop, then, and among them is midfielder Grujic who has spent most of his time on the books at Liverpool out on loan.
He’s currently at Porto where he has largely been used as a sub and the Reds, according to Sportske, are now ready to part ways with the player.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
According to the report, Liverpool are looking for £17m and £25m which, all things considered, would be another example of Michael Edwards pulling off a master-stroke if they could get such a fee for a player that has made just 8 league appearances in red – he’s played more for Cardiff in that instance.
Grujic looked like an exciting signing and one many thought Klopp could turn into a top player but we’ve never really seen him force his way in at Liverpool.
A shame, perhaps, but he is at a stage in his career where he’ll want to be playing more now and the Reds are obviously happy to sell.
Let’s see if they can get that kind of money, though.
