Midfielder and elusive Liverpool man Marko Grujic could be set to leave Merseyside as decisions are to be made over his future.
According to the Liverpool ECHO (relayed via @LFCTransferRoom), the Premier League champions are looking to cash in on the Serbia international. The club will reportedly demand a fee in excess of £20million, however Jurgen Klopp is happy to keep him on the books if no interested parties come forward.
Should Liverpool keep or sell Marko Grujic?
Grujic hasn’t played a match for Liverpool in almost three years, as a result of being ousted from the senior squad. His last involvement was a one minute cameo against Brighton in the Premier League back in 2017 (via Transfermarkt).
Since then, the 24-year-old has been on loan with Cardiff and Hertha Berlin whilst the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita have been seeing more and more first team action.
Many Liverpool fans have responded to the news and aren’t happy with the way the club appear to be going about their transfer business. One supporter has lashed out saying ‘we are so shameless’, for demanding a seemingly high fee for a man who hasn’t played for the club since 2017.
Kopites have been pointing the finger at Fenway Sports Group for not spending money. A deal for heavily-linked target Thiago Alcantara is still yet to be finalised.

If you want to get a good fee for a player, you're obviously not going to put out the message that your desperate to sell. That's what's happening here, I reckon. I'd be very surprised if Grujic doesn't go
