Since joining Liverpool in 2015, Jurgen Klopp has often been praised for his transfer dealings at the club for both the players he has brought in and the profit he has made.
The signings of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson have ensured Liverpool future profits in the future, whilst the departures of Dominic Solanke, Jordan Ibe and Danny Ings have seen Klopp recoup a substantial amount of money over the years.
And another player who could be set to leave Anfield for big bucks is Marko Grujic, who according to ESPN is a £35 million target for Atletico Madrid should midfielder Rodri make the move to Manchester City this summer.
The Serbian midfielder, who is out on loan at Hertha Berlin, joined Liverpool as an 18-year-old from Red Star Belgrade in the 2016 January transfer window for a reported fee of £5 million as Klopp’s first signing as Reds boss, however, his time on Merseyside has been frustrating.
Grujic has only made 13 appearances in total for the club and has spent the majority of his time out on loan, and although it might be tempting to offload the 23-year-old for a fee seven times of that what Liverpool paid for him, selling the Serbian would be Klopp’s biggest transfer mistake yet in England.
His time on the pitch in Liverpool colours has been limited, but in Grujic the Merseyside club have a player who can control the midfield for years to come.
Although Hertha have had another underwhelming season, Grujic has seen his stock rise massively in the German capital, with manager Pal Dardai even claiming the Serb has been the best midfielder who has played for the club in 20 years.
With James Milner entering the twilight years of his career and Jordan Henderson not showing any signs of improving, Grujic could be the next long-term answer for the club in midfield, and selling him would be a mistake Klopp will regret down the line.
Liverpool fans, should Grujic be given a chance to impress Klopp? Let us know!
