Plenty of Liverpool fans have been reacting to transfer reports claiming that Marko Grujic could be sold this summer.
German media outlet Bild claimed that Hertha Berlin, to whom the midfielder has been on loan for the last two years, want to sign him on a permanent deal, with Jurgen Klopp set to decide on the player’s Anfield future during the Reds’ pre-season training camp in Austria. The news was subsequently shared on Twitter by @AnfieldEdition.

Grujic, who is valued at £13.05m by TransferMarkt, was Klopp’s first signing as Liverpool manager back in 2016 but has been unable to establish himself on Merseyside, making just 14 appearances for the club and being loaned out to Cardiff and Hertha Berlin (twice).
In responding to reports of the Bundesliga club’s desire for a permanent deal, many Reds supporters are in favour of that happening, given the plethora of midfield options at Klopp’s disposal, while some feel that selling the 24-year-old could help to bankroll the potential signing of Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich, with the Spain international reportedly keen on moving to Anfield.
Should Liverpool keep or sell Marko Grujic?
Check out some of the Twitter responses from Liverpool fans below:
I actually really like Grujic and wanted him to stay as he offers something different in midfield with his physicality, but now I wouldn’t be opposed to a permanent sale.
If Thiago comes, we have about 8 midfielders vying for 3 spots — there’s literally no space for him. https://t.co/i32G9vDeB4

Reckon we get £20M for him. An extra £5M on top of that gets Thiago, if you look at it that way. https://t.co/cPeYj9wo5I

Has to sold to fund Thiago. The very definition of a no brainer.

He could fund Thiago. Hertha Berlin are loaded.
If I was a Arab Billionaire and I couldn’t buy Liverpool I would buy Hertha Berlin because it’s the best club in the capital, easy to create a brand like PSG did

We should sell him and get a better midfielder (Thiago ) he’d be worth a lot tbh

Liverpool fans, would you be in favour of selling Grujic if it meant being able to get the Thiago deal over the line? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
