Jurgen Klopp holds the future of Marko Grujic in his hands, report Bild on Sunday. The Liverpool boss is going to decide the midfielder’s future after closely watching him at the Reds’ preseason camp.
Spending another season on loan at Hertha Berlin, there’s a desire at the German club to have him again for the next campaign, and this time a permanent transfer is presented as the likelier scenario.
Liverpool signed Grujic in 2016 as one for the future, and whilst he’s progressed in Germany it’s unlikely he’d be a regular at Anfield. At 24 years of age, that’s what Grujic is looking for, and it’s explained he knows he’d be an important player if he returned to Hertha again.
Bild explain that Grujic has already bought a property in Berlin, and if he can’t make it at Liverpool then Hertha remains a ‘dream’ club for him. The Serbian has learned German and feels at home in the Bundesliga.
Now, according to Bild, ‘everything depends on Klopp’ and what the manager decides to do. Then, if he feels an exit is the right way forward, the two clubs will need to work on agreeing a transfer fee.
