Report: Liverpool continue talks over Marko Grujic deal, 19-year-old's family have Anfield concerns

Anfield Pitch

Liverpool are reportedly still in talks over signing Red Star Belgrade star Marko Grujic.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool are still in talks over a deal to sign Red Star Belgrade's teenage midfielder Marko Grujic.

The Reds are bound to be linked with a host of players under new manager Jurgen Klopp, and whilst some fans may want bigger names, it seems that the German boss is pressing ahead with a deal for Serbian sensation Grujic.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who has earned comparisons to his fellow Serbian Nemanja Matic, has been attracting interest from a host of clubs in Europe, with the Daily Mail recently reporting that Celtic, Chelsea, Everton, Manchester City and Manchester United are all interested in Grujic.

However, it seems that Liverpool are in the driving seat to land the teenager's signature - but no deal has been agred just yet, according to the Liverpool Echo.

They state that Liverpool are continuing talks over a deal for Grujic, which would see the midfielder join in the summer as he attempts to help Red Star qualify for the Champions League this term.

Whilst it looks like Liverpool are the favourites to sign Grujic, there are problems in the deal. The report from the Liverpool Echo states that Grujic's parents are concerned about how fellow Serbians Milan Jovanovic and Lazar Markovic struggled to settle at Anfield, and don't want the same situation for their son.

Liverpool will be hoping that those concerns can be eased in the near future, given that there is plenty of interest in Grujic's signature - and they certainly won't want to lose him to a Premier League rival.
