Marko Grujic has failed to establish himself in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool starting eleven so far and is in dire need of regular game time this season to continue with his development. The 21-year-old has all the makings of a box-to-box midfielder but with his first-team opportunities limited at Merseyside this season, he might look to move on to greener pastures. The 21-year-old arrived at Liverpool from Red Star Belgrade in the summer of 2016 but has only been subject to cameos during pre-season. The Serbian international was unable to stamp his authority under Jurgen Klopp so far.
The 21-year-old midfielder is being touted to go out on loan in this transfer window and a move to Huddersfield Town might turn out to be beneficial for all parties. The Terriers currently find themselves in 11th place, just four points above the relegation zone. David Wagner may be on the lookout for a strong midfielder who can score goals and a temporary move for Grujic can turn out to be an ideal solution to some of their recent midfield struggles.
Other than Aaron Mooy, the Terriers midfield has failed to contribute and be productive in the opposition half. Mooy has led the goalscoring charts with 4 goals for Huddersfield this season. However, the likes of Tom Ince and Elias Kachunga has failed to make a similar impact with just a goal each to their name in this campaign.
The acquisition of Liverpool outcast, Marko Grujic could be a fine addition to their squad. The Serbian is physically strong and has a knack for making late runs into the box. He can also shield the back line if need be and play in a deep, holding midfield role.
David Wagner is a close friend of Jurgen Klopp so a potential transfer could be arranged on a temporary basis. It is a low-risk investment that can work wonders for the Terriers in their quest to ensure Premier League survival at the end of this season. Grujic has already earned 4 international caps for the Serbian national team and has impressed with his performances in pre-season for the Reds when he scored a goal against Barcelona as part of a friendly match last year.
At 6 feet 2 inches, he has a good leap and can score with headers. The Serbian youngster can also dribble with the ball from tight spaces which makes it tricky for the opposing defenders to deal with him. His talents are something that the West Yorkshire club can make use of going into the second half of the campaign.
Only time will tell what lies ahead in the future of Marko Grujic with the January transfer window in full swing.
