Marko Grujic has not had much of a look-in at Liverpool since becoming Jurgen Klopp’s first signing for the club back in 2016, as noted by ESPN.
The Serbian midfielder has been loaned out to Red Star Belgrade, Cardiff and Hertha Berlin in that time, with the 23-year-old currently spending a second season at the latter.
Grujic has been in decent form for Hertha Berlin in recent weeks, scoring twice and providing one assist in eight appearances for the Bundesliga club this season after five goals and an assist in 2018/19.
Can most certainly see Grujic replacing Lallana in the LFC squad next season. Grujic is gaining valuable experience in the bundesliga playing week in week out for Hertha Berlin. #LFC

Part of that thinking is with an eye to Adam Lallana’s future at the club, with the England midfielder turning 32 next May and starting just one match in all competitions so far this term, as well as being out of contract at the end of the campaign.
These Liverpool fans on Twitter agree that Grujic should be given a chance at Anfield once his loan spell at Hertha Berlin comes to an end:
It’s hard to disagree with everything you say. Spot on again.

Agreed, Grujic has improved massively at Hertha and I think he’s ready for LFC now

Should give Grujic a good go in preseason and see how he goes.

Can never forget his goal vs barca in preseason couple of years back. This lad has potential

Well lallana gone and eventually milner has to be out of contention weekly at some point. Grujic replacing 2 ageing in the squad, then add a quality winger. It then looks a lot more balanced.

Do you think Grujic should at least be retained in Liverpool’s squad from next season or has he any future at the club? Join in the discussion by commenting below!
