When Liverpool snapped up Marko Grujić, the Serbian youngster was labelled as quite the coup.
However, the young midfielder was never going to be able to break immediately into Jürgen Klopp’s squad at Anfield, so loans to Cardiff and Hertha BSC (twice) were organised.
Since joining the Bundesliga club, Grujić has become part a key-member of the squad, especially over the past season when he made 29 league appearances from a possible 34, starting all of them.
Noe back at Liverpool after his loan deal came to an end on June 30th, the Reds have to decide what they want to do with the 24-year-old.
BZ-Berlin in Germany reckon ‘it’s quite possible’ that Grujić ‘will be loaned again or even bought’.
However, any move wouldn’t take place immediately as the local outlet state he ‘should complete the preparation’ at Liverpool so that Klopp can ‘get an idea of him’.
Should he not believe the midfielder ready for his squad, ‘Hertha can think of a third loan of a purchase’.
It’s claimed that Grujić’s value ‘has dropped from €20m to €14.5m’, making him ‘not a bargain, but an opportunity’.
As for the player in all this, he hinted a prolongated stay in Berlin would be welcome, saying: “The director Michael Preetz said they will speak to the people in England to see what is possible. Form day one, I felt like I was a part of this club. Everyone made me feel like this is my club, and it is my club!”.
