Liverpool duo sold

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujić has joined Porto in a £10.5 million deal.

The Serbian was manager Jurgen Klopp’s signing after taking over at Anfield in October 2015, but struggled to establish himself at Anfield since.

Instead, he embarked on a series of loan moves to Red Star Belgrade, Cardiff City and Hertha Berlin and, most recently to Porto last season. He played 23 times for the Primeira Liga side, scoring three times, and they have been sufficiently impressed by his qualities to convert that into a permanent deal.

The 25 year old has 12 full international caps for Serbia.

Grujić is expected to form part of a summer clear-out by Klopp as he attempts to raise funds to be spend in the transfer market. Also sold is Nigerian forward Taiwo Awoniyi, who has moved to the Bundesliga with Union Berlin for a free of £6.5 million, whilst Welsh winger Harry Wilson could be heading to Fulham.
