Liverpool put Grujic on sale, Porto and Hertha Berlin interested –
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has sanctioned the sale of ostracized midfielder Marko Grujic, according to reports.
Grujic, 25, has only made 16 appearances for the Reds since arriving from Red Star from Belgrade in January 2016, after being sent on a loan odyssey.
Last season he was in Porto, but he has also been borrowed by Hertha Berlin, Cardiff City and former club Red Star in years past.

After a disappointing start to the campaign, Grujic’s form started to improve at the Estádio do Dragão, leading Porto to consider a permanent move for the Liverpool man.
Speaking in January, Grujic said the opportunity to establish himself in the Liverpool squad has passed.
“I made the preparations with the club, after two years in the Bundesliga, I came back to England more mature,” he said. Kurir. “That’s what they told me in Liverpool.
“But when Thiago Alcantara came from Bayern [Munich], I felt that there would not be much space for me. I didn’t want to play.
“I now see that there are a lot of injured players at Anfield. Certainly I would have had a chance, but I could not have foreseen it.
The news that Liverpool are ready to part ways with the Serb has alerted Hertha Berlin, whose manager, Pál Dárdai, is a big admirer of Grujic. He said of the player in 2018: “He’s Hertha’s best midfielder since I’ve been in Berlin.
“He’s very present defensively and offensively. He has a strong header, a good shot and a good duel.
According to Correio da Manha, Hertha’s interest set off alarm bells in Porto, from which Grujic’s pursuit could now be diverted. They fear that any further competition will also increase the price of the midfielder, who is currently valued at £ 12million by sporting director Michael Edwards.
Liverpool are likely to reinvest the funds in an offer to sign Leeds United winger Raphinha.
