Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has returned to the club after a two year loan spell away with Hertha Berlin however both clubs are now in discussions to make the move permanent.
The Serbian was Jurgen Klopp’s first signing when he joined in the January transfer window of 2016 for £5m, the Reds will now hope to return a profit of almost £15m for the midfielder as they demand a £20m fee.
The fee of £20m has so far proved a sticking point with reports from Germany suggesting Hertha Berlin would be more interested in taking him a loan for a 3rd spell with an obligation to buy at the end of the deal.
Reliable Neil Jones of Goal reports that Marko Grujic is also of interested to Hertha Berlin’s german rival Eintracht Frankfurt, Borrusia Moenchengladbach & Wolfsburg all interested along with Premier League sides Aston Villa & Crystal Palace.
After spending the last two seasons on loan at Hertha Berlin it would seem very likely that Marko Grujic would prefer to make the move permanent, while the fee is a sticking point a compromise can be reached and I would expect Grujic to make the move before the season starts.
