Hertha Berlin took Marko Grujić on loan from Liverpool in 2018 and last summer, the midfielder’s temporary stay at the club was extended for one more season.
The 24-year-old will return to Anfield once the Bundesliga campaign ends this weekend. He has managed four goals and an assist in 28 league matches.
Hertha Berlin sporting director Michael Preetz admitted his side are considering taking the Serbia international against this summer.
“Of course, we are in talks with Liverpool. Last summer, a door opened. Jürgen Klopp signalled to me that they were ready to loan Marko for another year,” Preetz said, as quoted by Kicker.
“Now they want him back and he should complete the [pre-season] preparation there. I cannot say today what will happen. But Marko is a player we will always think about here at Hertha.”
Kicker state this could mean the German side have ‘not written off’ signing Jürgen Klopp’s man, but also stressed Hertha Berlin are looking at several targets in the transfer market.
Grujić’s contract with the Reds runs down in 2023 and the Merseyside club want to cash in from his sale this summer, if reports are to be believed.
On June 16th, Area Napoli reported the Liverpool owned player has been offered to Napoli and the newly crowned English champions are hoping to collect €25m from his sale.
