Liverpool midfielder Grujic reportedly wanted by Galatasaray

As the pres-season starts for many clubs across Europe of the next few weeks, a mad scramble for new players is likely to happened for many.

Liverpool will do some business, but aren't in desperate need, now that a back up left-back has been secured. We have at least two options in most positions.

That isn't the case in midfield though, where we have half a dozen, with the impending signing of Thiago adding in that area even further.

A signing of that quality would almost certainly spell the end for what was Jurgen Klopp's first permanent signing as Liverpool manager.

Marko Grujic was considered a hot prospect across Europe when the Reds signed him but five years on, after only a handful of appearances, a permanent move away is looking ever more likely.

A series of successful loan moves to Germany haven't brought him any closer to the Liverpool first team, and with the club in its strongest position in 30 years, it's unlikely he'll win a place in the squad this season either.

So the news today, from Sport Witness, that Turkish giants Galatasaray are interested will be of interest to many fans. It's a potential that could benefit everybody.

The outlet reports that the £20 million rated midfielder is a player that the Turkish side would really like to get their hands on, having struggled last season and are prepared to undergo a period of rebuilding. Any offer in that ballpark would likely suit Liverpool very much.
