Hertha Berlin sporting director Michael Preetz has revealed that he is willing to open talks with Liverpool regarding the permanent signing of on loan star Marko Grujic.
The Bundesliga side won the race to loan the Serbian talent during the summer transfer window, and the 22-year-old has gone on to net twice from 10 league appearances.
Marko Grujic is currently due to return to Anfield in the summer, but it appears that the German club is looking to keep the youngster on a full-time basis.
Michael Preetz told Kicker that the club is happy to have have the youngster and hinted that he wants the player to stay permanently rather than for one season only. And he is ready to talk to Liverpool about the Serbian the next season.
Michael Preetz also said that all the guys can help make a difference in a season when something extraordinary is possible and also added that it would be wonderful to successfully take the next step with Marko Grujic.
The 22-year-old has only made three starts for the Jurgen Klopp’s side since moving to Anfield back in January 2016 and with the current midfielders at the Merseyside giants, the Serbian has a little chance to break in the first-team.
With summer signings Naby Keita and Fabinho along Jordan Henderson and James Milner desperately trying to cement a place under the German manager but Jurgen Klopp has preferred to rotate the players depended on the opposite side.
It must be admitted that the return of Giorginio Wijnaldum was a huge boost for Liverpool as the Dutchman scored the second goal for the Reds against Bournemouth.
