Marko Grujic’s performances on loan at Hertha Berlin this season have seen him earn substantial plaudits from Bundesliga side, but now Serie A side Torino have had their interest piqued.
Pinch of salt as always, Reds!
As Neil Jones suggested at Goal suggested last summer, Torino were keen to bring Grujic to Turin last year but failed with a €10 million bid. His value has seemingly risen exponentially after a decent season on loan in the Bundesliga.
Torino’s no. 1 target is Watford’s Roberto Pereyra, but they have apparently baulked at his €30m price tag. That said, Grujic is likely to cost them a pretty penny too.
Back in April, Atlético Madrid were apparently after him for €40 million.

The Serbian midfielder scored five goals in 23 appearances for Hertha Berlin though it doesn’t seem he will be returning to the German capital.
A return to Germany could be on the cards though as Werder Bremen are thought to be weighing up a two-year loan deal for Grujic.
Werder Bremen have joined the list of clubs desperate to sign Marko Grujic this summer, but only if Liverpool are willing to loan out the Serbian.

The Reds, though – unsure of whether they can offer him first-team minutes – could seek a permanent move for the promising midfielder and cash in on his stock while his value is high.
