Hi Ed's,

Just a quick one on marko grujic!

I've been watching him pretty consistently in the bundesliga this year and I must add he is of standard to start in this liverpool team. His manager at Hertha argues he's the best player they've ever had!

Is there any update on his future next season?


{Ed002's Note - Yes, I understand he has been doing well. The club open to selling him but quoted €40M when an enquiry was made. There is a good chance that obtaining a work permit to play in England will be very difficult, and the player has said he would be open to staying in Berlin for another year.}

Of standard to start in this LFC team?
And which player would you drop to accommodate GRujic?
We already have a flexible and good variety of midfielders in Hendo, Fabinho, Keita, Ox and Gini. Grujic would basically be a Milner replacement/ 6th choice which I am pretty sure the lad does not want. If there is a team actually willing to pay what we want, then its best for all parties that Grujic moves on. The same goes for Wilson.

IB it is not a case of having midfielders ranked 1-6, he wouldn’t be 6th he would be a different dynamic to a fluid midfield 3. Each game needs to be individually analysed and the midfield can be picked.

Admittedly he still needs to prove himself but don’t write him off.

I've watched him at Berlin, and he'd definitely be an asset to have around. IB, you say he won't wan't to come back if he's not first choice? Many players would be happy not to be first choice if there's silverware involved. Let's just hop that we have just as impressive season next time.

You'd be surprised how people drop their demands for guaranteed playing time when you've reached two Chamions League Semi Finals in two years (the only team in Europe, btw. ) and are within a pinch of winning the most competitive league in the world.

How many goals has Grujic got from CM? I think this is something we need to add to our midfield.

Good point aggerdo.

Klopp hasn't made many blunders in the transfer market. Only karius and even he did ok bar the final. Klavan came good in the end. Matip has been very good lately. I think grujic would be a great addition, especially if lallana leaves, which looks likely.
