Marko Grujic has a ‘genuine chance’ of breaking into the Liverpool first-team next season, according to James Pearce of The Athletic.
Grujic is currently plying his trade at Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin for the second year in succession as he looks to force a way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans.
Though he has not had an outing for the Reds since the first half of the 2017/18 season, he remains confident.
And Pearce maintains that Klopp has high hopes for the Serbian international.

Liverpool have plenty of midfield options, but Grujic is a very talented player capable of competing for a spot.
And the possible departures of James Milner and Adam Lallana in the summer could open the door.
Grujic will have to perform especially well to catch the eye, though, with Hertha set for a tricky campaign after losing three of their opening five games.
You’d suspect that, rather than loan him out yet again, Klopp would sanction a lucrative sale if he doesn’t find a place for the 23-year-old in 2020/21.
