Marko Grujic joined Liverpool with high expectations placed on his shoulders. The Serbian international was Jurgen Klopp's first signing after succeeding Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager. However, the Red Star Belgrade product has consistently been sent out on loan after failing to lock down a place with the first team. 

The midfielder has been sent on loan to four different clubs since signing for Liverpool. The first was a formality as Liverpool and Red Star Belgrade agreed that Grujic would be immediately loaned back to the Serbian club after his move to Anfield.

After this, he went out on loan to Cardiff City, Hertha Berlin for two consecutive seasons before joining his current loan club, Porto. 

It was previously reported that Marko Grujic would be returning to Liverpool once the 2021/21 season ends, but Record Portugal claim that FC Porto are now hoping to make Grujic's loan a permanent transfer.

Currently sitting in 2nd place in the Primeira Liga in the top flight of Portugal, FC Porto are said to be keen on keeping Grujic, but not for the €23 million that Liverpool were seeking last season. 

Grujic has featured a total of 32 times for the Portuguese club but has played just 1161 minutes for an average of 36 minutes per match played. These appearances have been rather uneventful for the Liverpool loanee as he has not managed to score of provide any assists. 

With many players bound for Anfield exits this summer, the club will surely be looking for a buyer for Marko Grujic.
