Liverpool are planning to sell Marko Grujic for an enormous profit this summer, Football Insider understands.

The central midfielder, who turns 24-year-old in April, has proved himself as a Bundesliga star during his two campaigns out on loan at Hertha Berlin.

A Liverpool source has told Football Insider the club are willing to listen to proposals for Marko Grujic in the next window and require to sell him for a £25million-plus fee.

That would represent a advantage of more than £20m for a player who was Jurgen Klopp’s first signing for the Merseysiders back in winter 2016 for £5.1million.

The club’s loans boss Julian Ward is closely monitoring the development of the Serbia international midfielder and delivers regular reports to Jurgen Klopp’s coaching team about his performances for Hertha Berlin.

Marko Grujic is a crucial player for 14th-placed Hertha Berlin and has started 19 of their 21 Bundesliga matches this campaign.

Liverpool have been impressed by the improvement made by the 6ft 3in powerhouse, who has smoothed out the rough edges to his game in the last two campaigns.

But they do not currently expect him to be a regular starter in Jurgen Klopp’s all-conquering side next campaign.

Marko Grujic has spoken of returning to the Merseyside Reds to make his mark at his parent club after offers were declined for him from Premier League and Bundesliga clubs last summer.
