A number of Liverpool supporters are happy with the news that Reds midfielder Marko Grujic looks set to join Porto this summer.
The focus for Jurgen Klopp and Michael Edwards may be on bringing in new signings in the transfer window, but the manager and sporting director may also be looking to get rid of surplus players. This would help to generate transfer funds for new incomings, along with refining Liverpool’s squad ahead of next season.
Grujic seemingly has no future at Anfield, with the Serbian sent out on loan numerous times in recent years and making just 16 Reds appearances overall.
According to A Bola [via LFC Transfer Room on Twitter], the 25-year-old looks set to join Porto for €13m (£11.1m) next week, with Liverpool agreeing a fee with the Portuguese giants to finally end his five-and-a-half-year spell on the Anfield club’s books.
Liverpool fans react to Grujic rumour

“Praying this is true. One deadwood down. Now only Shaq, Wilson & Origi to go“
“£10m for Grujic? Wow what a genius Edwards is“
“Bought for €5m, sold for €13m, nice business“
“Bought £5.1m, sell £11.1m. Good job Michael Edwards“
