Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic may finally be on his way out. Grujic has spent most of his time with the Reds out on loan, but this time, it seems that a permanent transfer is nearing completion.

The Serbian international spent this past season on loan to FC Porto, and now according to Portuguese news outlets, the two clubs could be coming to an agreement on a final fee to make the move permanent.

Per the reports, Liverpool are asking for €17m for his services, while Porto valued him at only €10m. They are now nearing a compromise that meets about halfway at around €13m.

For Porto Grujic scored two league goals in his 23 appearances and helped them reach second place in the league, five points behind Sporting CP.

After loans to Cardiff City and Hertha BSC, Grujic is likely eager to land at a club on a permanent deal where he’ll see some decent playing time. While he was the first signing of the Klopp era, he never managed to earn himself a consistent spot in the midfield. His exit this summer, should it occur, is one that will be unsurprising and inevitable to Liverpool fans.
