Marko Grujic is expected to leave Liverpool today and Werder Bremen are the latest club to register their interest in the midfielder – but for a loan deal.
That’s according to Evening Standard journalist David Lynch, who is a very reliable source when it comes to matters relating to the Reds.

Grujic has been targeted by several Bundesliga clubs, after smashing it on loan with Hertha Berlin in Jurgen Klopp’s motherland.
The Serbian was linked with a move to Borussia Monchengladbach earlier in the window, with Liverpool asking for between £15million and £20million for the midfielder.
That claim was made by GOAL’s Neil Jones, who said the Premier League champions are hoping to recoup around £60million from sales before the window closes.
Rhian Brewster has already made his move to Sheffield United worth around £23million, and sales of Grujic and one of Xherdan Shaqiri and Harry Wilson are expected to raise close to £40million.
Grujic joined the Reds in 2016, but has only had one season as part of the squad, spending three of his four years out on loan.
Still considered a talented and very promising player, the Serbian should fetch a pretty penny if Liverpool are able to agree a permanent deal over a loan.
