Liverpool: Fairly insane demands for Marko Grujic may not be a good idea

Liverpool are enjoying such a prolific season that, not only their own players, but those on loan are also enjoying success.

Indeed, the Reds’ loanees have been impressive in different leagues, with midfielder Marko Grujic finding his form with Hertha Berlin.

The centre midfielder’s proved his talent in the Bundesliga with some impressive performances. The 23-year-old’s been an absolute rock in midfield, protecting Berlin from trouble time and again. As well as having scored four goals, the Serbian’s worked tirelessly on his defensive side, averaging 2.2 tackles, 2.5 clearances and 3.4 aerials won per game (stats via WhoScored).

He’s been a diligent figure, distributing possession proficiently and also helping cover for his defence. As a result, interest for him is mounting up. Indeed, Spanish giants Atletico Madrid are seemingly especially keen. However, according to reports (via Independent), the Reds are demanding a fairly shocking £35 million for someone who is surplus to requirement.

Clearly, FSG are just trying to churn out profit and it’d clearly but a masterstroke but the required fee is way too inflated. So much so that it could even put interested parties off. Indeed, Grujic’s only made eight league appearances for Liverpool and is definitely not getting into their packed squad anymore. They should just decrease the fee by a few million to cash in.

Obviously, everyone involved with Liverpool would want as much money as possible and that’s both understandable and commendable in equal measure. However, why run the risk of putting anyone off? A more reasonable fee would surely be in order here, capitalising on any big interest from the Spanish capital.

Liverpool fans, do you think Grujic should be sold this summer? Join the discussion by commenting below…
