Liverpool 22-year-old midfielder considering CSKA Moscow surprise exit

Marko Grujic is reportedly weighing up a number of loan options as the midfielder prepares to leave parent club Liverpool before the end of August.

The 22-year-old joined Liverpool from Red Star Belgrade in 2016, and has made 14 first-team appearances for the English giants.

Grujic spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City – making 14 appearances for the Welsh outfit as they secured a return to the Premier League.

The Serbian turned down the chance to return to Cardiff this summer, however, and it is understood that he has also rejected the advances of Middlesbrough.

According to the London Evening Standard, a move abroad is likely, with Russian giants CSKA Moscow currently leading the race to sign the midfielder on loan for the 2018-19 campaign.
