Marko Grujić (born 13 April 1996) is a Serbian footballer who plays as a midfielder for Liverpool.

Liverpool careerEdit

After the arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, there were plenty of rumours concerning Marko Grujic, with many speculating that the young Serbian star was set to arrive at the club in January.

On 6 January 2016, it was confirmed that Grujic was Klopp's first signing as manager, for a reported fee of around £5,100,000 from Red Star Belgrade, where he is to spend the rest of the 2015-16 season on loan.

Grujic reported for training at Melwood in the summer and was granted a work permit on 4 July 2016. That same day it was confirmed that Grujic was to wear the number 16 shirt for the 2016-17 season.

The Serbian made his uncompetitive bow for the club on 13 July 2016, in a 5-0 friendly win at Fleetwood. Grujic opened the scoring 18 minutes in, with a powerful strike from inside the box, and had also previously won a penalty, which was missed by Danny Ings. Grujic picked up a total of three goals in pre-season, the most notable being a sublime curling header to round off a 4-0 win over Barcelona.

On 20 August 2016, Grujic made his competitive debut, coming on as a late substitute in a 2-0 defeat at Burnley. The Serbian had to wait until 20 September to make his first start, when he played the full 90 minutes in a 3-0 win at Derby.
