Klopp issues ultimatum for €40m Liverpool midfielder to resolve future

Date published: Thursday 20th June 2019 8:14

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will allow midfielder Marko Grujic to find himself a new club before preseason starts, a report suggests.

The 23-year-old Liverpool signed a new contract with Liverpool and immediately joined Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan, where he enjoyed success.

The Serbia international became a regular for Pal Dardai’s side, making 21 Bundesliga appearances and scoring five times in the league, despite enduring ankle problems.

Recently, Grujic admitted that he is not planning to return to Liverpool and is loving his time at Hertha, encouraging the Bundesliga side to make a summer offer.

It was then claimed that the German capital club were set to meet Anfield chiefs to discuss a summer deal, with a €40m price tag apparently being placed upon the former Red Star man.

Now, Press Association Sport claims that Grujic is likely to have sorted out his immediate future before the first bunch of Jurgen Klopp’s European Cup winners return to Melwood early next month.

The linked of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita (Africa Cup of Nations), as well as Roberto Firmino and Alisson Becker (Copa America) are set to arrive back later than the rest of the squad, but Klopp is happy to allow Grujic to sort his future out before then.

Atletico Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt have also been mentioned as possible destinations for the 23-year-old, with another season out on loan not beyond the realms of possibility.
