Liverpool opinion – The Reds should let Marko Grujic sign for Hertha Berlin
Marko Grujic was signed by Liverpool for £5.1m in January 2016. But he hasn’t been used as a regular squad player since. Days after completing the move, the Reds sent him on loan to Red Star Belgrade, a club from where he initially made the move from.
He came back in the summer of 2016 and played a few games for the Merseysiders during the 2016/17 and in early parts of the 2017/18 season. Eventually, the 22-year-old was sent on loan to Cardiff City in January 2018, before making a season-long move to Hertha Berlin last summer.
Now as per the report in Sun, Grujic has revealed that he would choose to stay in Berlin rather than coming back to Liverpool at the end of this season. He has been playing regularly in the Bundesliga and wouldn’t mind if Hertha made a permanent offer.
Here’s why Liverpool should oblige and offload the Serbian in the summer transfer window:

Furthermore, Grujic has starred at Hertha Berlin this season, featuring 17 times in the league, scoring three goals and providing one assist.
