According to a recent report by Football Insider, Liverpool are confident that they can sell Marko Grujic for a fee over £20m if Jurgen Klopp decides to let him depart at the end of this campaign. A source close to Football Insider has revealed that the German head coach will decide on Grujic’s future at Anfield this summer.
Grujic’s Successful Loan Spell In Germany
The Serbian is currently playing on loan at Hertha Berlin where he has enjoyed a successful campaign thus far. He has even put in a few match-winning displays for the Bundesliga outfit during this campaign. Grujic has made a total of 18 appearances for the German side this term, scoring three goals while creating one assist in all competitions.
The former Red Star Belgrade midfielder has incredible potential and could turn out to be a world-class prospect in the future. However, he does not have the qualities to play in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team just yet. Hence, Liverpool might be better off cashing in on him in the summer. Grujic can also benefit from a move away from Anfield as he would be guaranteed more first-team opportunities.
Is Grujic Good Enough To Play For Liverpool?
Grujic is a physically strong athlete who can work tirelessly for his team at the centre of the park. There is no doubt that he could be a useful asset under Jurgen Klopp’s tutelage in the coming years.
However, the fact remains that he is still not good enough to secure a regular starting berth at the Merseyside club. So unless he is willing to go out on loan again next season, the best move for everyone involved would be for him to exit the club permanently during the summer transfer window.
Why The Serbian’s Departure Will Be The Best Move For Everyone Involved?
The departure of Grujic would not affect Klopp’s first-team at all but the money generated from his sale could help the Reds bring in more quality players ahead of the new season. If Klopp can find a way to sell him for a fee more than £20m in the summer, then he should consider doing the deal as it would be a shrewd move for all parties.
