Milan and Benevento ‘set their sights on Liverpool outcast Marko Grujic’

AC Milan and Benevento are interested in signing Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic this summer.

Both teams are gunning for the 24-year-old’s signature after a two season-long loan spell at Hertha Berlin saw him impress in the Bundesliga.

Due to the financial ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic, Hertha Berlin have chosen not to exercise their £18 million option to buy – leaving the door open for the Italian sides.

The Serbia international – who joined Liverpool from Red Star Belgrade for £5.1m in 2016 – made a total of 31 competitive appearances for Hertha Berlin last season.

During those outings, the midfielder scored four goals and registered two assists for his side.

Grujic has, however, only made 14 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side since joining in January 2016.

Newly promoted Benevento are said to be in advanced negotiations with Liverpool – having offered to sign Grujic on loan with the option to buy him at the end of the season, according to Tuttmercatoweb. 

Should Grujic sign with Benevento on loan, the contracted will be upgraded to a permanent deal if they avoid relegation during their first season back in the top-flight. 

AC Milan and Benevento are not the only clubs interested in signing the 24-year-old midfielder.

Villa and Crystal Palace are two top-flight clubs keen on Grujic, while in Germany Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Moenchengladbach are also interested as well as Serie A side Atalanta.
