Done deal: Liverpool agree deal for midfielder, not Fekir

Liverpool have agreed a deal in principle with Cardiff City over a potential loan move for Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic, according to reports.

Grujic was a key figure for his country club Red Star Belgrade before he joined the Reds in the January of 2016. Liverpool had to ward off interest from a host of clubs including Inter Milan, Juventus, Chelsea and Manchester United to sign the midfielder.

Since his arrival, the player has been unable to convince Klopp that he’s got the quality to the play for the Reds. He was loaned back immediately to Red Star Belgrade after joining Liverpool and he spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff.

Neil Warnock is apparently impressed with the show-off of the player for his side last season and they have moved to pluck him one more time from Merseyside. Football Insider, reports that there is now an agreement in place between the Reds and the Blues birds for the player’s loan move.

Liverpool confirmed the signing of Fabinho and Naby Keita, this means Grujic has further fallen down the selection pecking order of Klopp. He will continue his development with Cardiff and hopefully returns as a better player for Liverpool next season.
