Liverpool close to reach agreement for 21-year-old Serbian midfielder

Liverpool are reportedly keen to send Marko Grujic out on loan, but will only consider Championship clubs.

The 21-year-old has failed to earn a regular place in Jurgen Klopp’s team having made just six appearances all season so far.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the manager sees Grujic in his plans for the future, but thinks that he needs regular game time to continue developing.

The publication claims that West Ham United and Huddersfield Town have expressed an interest in taking the midfielder on a temporary basis, but from the Reds’ point of view, they feel that the player would get more opportunities in the second tier.

A host of Championship clubs are said to have contacted the Merseyside outfit regarding a deal that could be struck this month.

Grujic moved to Anfield from Red Star Belgrade in 2016.
