Jurgen Klopp is determined to increase the depth of his squad when the transfer window opens in January.
At the same time, the Italian tactician is planning on trimming out some names from his team sheet, sending them packing permanently.
Serbia international Marko Grujic is on the German’s laundry list of players he could offload in the winter.
Grujic has seen regular appearances hard to come by under Klopp and Liverpool would be happy to sell him off when the transfer window is flung open next month.
According to a report in The Sun, Liverpool will accept £4.5 million for the fringe player.
Grujic joined the Reds from Redstar Belgrade two years ago, but has underperformed heavily since moving for a price fee of £5.1 million.
Watering down his price tag to £4.5 million will see the Reds short-changed. But it is understood letting him go for that amount, shows how much the Reds no longer want to shoulder the responsibility of paying his wages when he can’t break into the club’s first team.
The 22-year-old has had loan spells at former club Red Star and Cardiff City and is currently on loan at German side Hertha Berlin.
