On August 27th, we carried a report from Corriere dello Sport, who explained Atalanta, AC Milan and Benevento are interested in Liverpool’s Marko Grujić.

It was also stated Atalanta have made an offer to take the 24-year-old on a paid loan deal with an obligation to buy.

The midfielder spent the last two seasons on loan at Hertha Berlin, and earlier reports indicated the Bundesliga side wanted to bring the player back to the club, most likely on another temporary deal.

Fali Ramadani, the Croatian’s agent, has now said his client is included in Jürgen Klopp’s plans, at least until the end of this calendar year. 

“Liverpool want to keep Marko. That could change in January at the earliest,” Ramadani told Kicker

Liverpool registered a 4-3 win over Leeds United in their first league tie of the new season, and Grujić wasn’t included in the match-day squad. 

The 24-year-old, who primarily operates as a central midfielder, will have to fight with Georginio Wijnaldum, Naby Keïta, Jordan Henderson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for a place in the Reds’ starting lineup this campaign.
