Following an impressive season in Germany with Hertha Berlin, Liverpool could be set to cash in on Marko Grujic, but the player will only be sold if somebody offers more than £25M for the 23-year-old Serbian midfielder.

That’s the story today from Goal’s Neil Jones, who further claims that following the £54M sale of striker Luka Jovic to Real Madrid, Eintracht Frankfurt has shown an increased interest in signing Grujic on a permanent deal.

Berlin as well as Werder Bremen have also been linked with a move for Grujic previously, though in both cases past reports have claimed those two clubs would prefer a two-year loan for the talented young midfielder.

In theory, it’s easy to see how such a move might make sense, giving Grujic top minutes before returning him to Anfield with two years left on his contract as some of Liverpool’s current starters need replacing.

However, after investing heavily in new contracts for current stars over the past year, the Reds are believed to be counting on sales to make up a major portion of spend this summer—which could mean selling an asset like Grujic.

Or at least it could if the right offer rolls in, and while Berlin and Bremen might not be able to afford him, following the sale of Jovic it seems a safe bet that Frankfurt could.
