Elusive Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic has had a price tag slapped on his head for a potential summer sale and fans are less than impressed with the idea of him leaving the club.
According to James Pearce (via @AnfieldEdition), should Liverpool want to offload the Serbian in the next transfer window, they will looking to acquire between £15million and £20million for his services.
Grujic has been with the Reds since 2016 when he moved from Red Star Belgrade in the winter for £5.1million (via BBC Sport). The teenager was loaned immediately back out to his former employers before joining up with Liverpool officially in July. The now 23-year-old has since been on loan with Cardiff City and Hertha Berlin, where he is currently enjoying a two-year spell.
Grujic has made just 13 overall appearances across all competitions in the four years he has been a Liverpool player (via Transfermarkt), so a permanent sale would make sense this summer. However, many fans aren’t at all happy that he is being linked with an Anfield exit, with several stating there’s ‘no need to sell him’ and it would be ‘very bad business’ if they did.
Another fan has tipped the playmaker to be ‘an ideal Lallana replacement’ if the Englishman is to depart.
Don't even dare. Very bad business

This lad could be an ideal Lallana replacement. Deserves to at least have next season at Anfield rather than just chucking him aside for a measly few quid
