Having impressed at Hertha Berlin this season during his loan spell from Liverpool, midfielder Marko Grujic could now be set to stay at the Olympiastadion on a permanent basis.
Following the Bundesliga outfit’s 1-0 loss to VfL Wolfsburg over the weekend, sporting director Michael Preetz has since come out and hinted that his club will look to sign the 22-year-old.
“First and foremost, we’re happy that we have Marko. I’d always prefer that a player helps me out for a year than not at all,” Preetz told Kicker (via Bulinews). “We’ll certainly talk to Liverpool about the next season.”
Be it at Hertha or elsewhere, Grujic should definitely pursue a permanent move away from Anfield.
At Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp already has the likes of Naby Keita, Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum to call upon, making winning a first-team spot an extremely difficult task for Grujic.
And with the ability he possesses, the Serbia international is too good of a player to be farmed out season after season.
A tall defensive midfielder previously compared to compatriot Nemanja Matic, Grujic combines power with skill, being able to win back possession as well as start off attacks with his passing ability.
If Klopp cannot find room for him, there should be plenty of other managers in the Premier League or elsewhere, like Hertha, who can.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
