Marko Grujic

Liverpool may earn £2.5m from Marko Grujic’s loan, Brighton miss out

Liverpool loan Marko Grujic back to Hertha Berlin

On Monday, Liverpool have confirmed that Marko Grujic is heading back to the Bundesliga.

After a season-long loan at Hertha Berlin in 2018-19, Liverpool have agreed to do the same deal again in 2019-20.

Last year, 23-year-old Grujic scored five goals in 23 appearances for Hertha.

Liverpool may earn £2.5m from Marko Grujic’s loan

As confirmed in the Guardian and the Times (see tweet below), Liverpool may earn £2.5m from Marko Grujic’s loan move back to Hertha:

Liverpool will receive a £2m loan fee from Hertha with the potential for an extra £500,000 in bonuses. The German club will also pay Grujic’s salary in full plus any penalties arising from a lack of game time.

Brighton miss out on Grujic

It’s also been confirmed that Brighton were in the market to sign Grujic from Liverpool.

The Guardian add that Eintracht Frankfurt, Werder Bremen and Atalanta were all trying to sign the Serbian international, too.

What does this mean for Grujic’s Liverpool future?

Grujic is under contract at Liverpool until 2023.

But following three loan moves – to Cardiff and now Hertha twice – will the Serb ever get the chance to impress at Anfield?

The Guardian say ‘yes’:

Jurgen Klopp has assured Marko Grujic that he remains in Liverpool’s long-term plans despite the midfielder being allowed to rejoin Hertha Berlin on a season-long loan.

Who else might be leaving Liverpool on loan?

Grujic’s loan move may only be the beginning of such deals at Anfield this summer.

Goal.com believe that Ben Woodburn, Ovie Ejaria and Herbie Kane are all likely to be farmed out to Championship clubs.

Elsewhere, Kamil Grabara has interest from clubs in Germany and Belgium.
