The future of Liverpool Midfielder Marko Grujic is still in doubt despite being part of the squad that travelled to Austria for the preseason after a season-long loan at Hertha Berlin.
Grijic, who spent last two seasons on loan with Hertha Berlin could return to the Bundesliga club, but Liverpool might want to sell him outrightly this summer. This has therefore cast doubt on his future at Anfield.
Grujic was Jurgen Klopp first signing after when he joined the club in 2016. The German tactician, who has now seen him as a surplus to requirement at Anfield is looking to cash in on him.
GOAL had last month claimed that the Reds are ready to sell the Serbian this summer after two successful loan spells with Hertha Berlin.
Due to his performance in the Bundesliga, some offers coming in for him wouldn’t be the strangest of things.
It was gathered that the likes of Eintracht Frankfurt, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Werder Bremen are interested in Grujic.
Hertha Berlin keeping eye Marko Grujic
Meanwhile, Hertha Berlin’s chief Michael Preetz has said he’s keeping an eye on the developing situation at Anfield, concerning the midfielder’s future.
“[Grujic] is a Liverpool player who spent two years on loan with us. He has been in training with Liverpool for a few days.
“Unlike last year, it was Liverpool’s declared wish that Marko should take part in much of the preparation there.
“Then there will certainly be a decision in England about Marko’s immediate future: Will he be loaned out again? Is he for sale? Will he be part of the Liverpool team?
“That cannot be foreseen at the moment,” ” he told German outlet Kicker.
In case Liverpool put Grujic up for sale this summer, Hertha Berlin will definitely be involved with the conversation. This is because he had already made the Bundesliga side his home for two years.
Preetz, however, stated that the midfielder’s future is still very much up in the air. This is because Klopp is yet to decide if he wants to keep his first signing or release him.
Klopp had signed the midfielder for the Red in 2016. He has however spent one season as part of the squad while spending three of his four years out on loan.
The Serbian is still considered a talented and very promising player. Liverpool can therefore still make some money should Klopp decide to move him on.
