Marko Grujić’s failure to convince Jürgen Klopp at Liverpool has seen him go out on loan since the start of 2018.

Having spent the last two seasons at Hertha Berlin, the Reds allowed the midfielder join FC Porto on a temporary deal back in the summer.

The Serbia international has been restricted to only five starts in the league and Champions League for the Dragons. He came off the bench in Porto’s 2-1 win over Juventus earlier this week.

Grujić has a contract with the Merseyside club until 2023, but it’s ‘already clear’ that he could leave the Premier League winners in the summer.

That’s according to Sportske, who say ‘it’s clear’ the 24-year-old will be leaving Klopp’s side because of Curtis Jones’ emergence this season.

It’s claimed 20-year-old Jones is an ‘extremely resourceful’ player, who has ‘found a way to get out of difficult situations’. This has helped him win Klopp’s confidence.

Grujić, on the other hand, is ‘almost five years’ older than Jones. There were ‘good indications’ earlier that the Serbian would have an ‘essential role’ at Anfield one day,

That hasn’t happened and it’s clear even without competition from Jones, Grujić’s opportunities would have been limited at Liverpool because he ‘did not progress as expected’ at the club.

Hence, the English champions will ‘try to sell’ the player in the summer and are looking to earn between €20m and €30m through his sale. If this happens, Grujić’s former club, Red Star Belgrade, could also benefit from it.
