Fenerbahce looking to loan Liverpool midfielder

Fenerbahce are planning a move for Marko Grujic.

According to the football transfer rumours in Turkish media, Fenerbahce are looking to loan Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic.

The Serbia international was signed by Liverpool in January 2016 from Red Star Belgrade for a fee of 7.4 million euros. The 21-year-old has a contract until 2020 with the club.

Marko Grujic has played 14 times for Liverpool since signing from Red Star Belgrade, creating one assist in that time.

The 21-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Serbia.

Marko Grujic has represented Serbia at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 36 caps and scoring two goals, before making his senior international debut in May 2016. As a member of Serbia national football team, Grujic won four caps.

The Liverpool manager does not see him in his plans and would be open to letting him leave.

Aykut Kocaman is looking to shore up his midfield options and Liverpool’s Marko Grujic happens to be a target. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players in Europe.

Fenerbahce will be desperate to make an impact in winter transfer window.

According to the report, the Turkish giants want Grujic on an 18-month loan deal in January. Fenerbahce also want to include a 5 million euros option to buy within the deal. While, Klopp may well sanction a loan deal for Grujic, he is very unlikely to agree to a permanent clause in the deal, especially at just 5 million euros.

A loan move away from Liverpool will not only be the best move for Marko Grujic, but also for the club.
