Report: Galatasaray want Liverpool's Marko Grujic and Newcastle's Mo Diame

Jurgen Klopp, Manager of Liverpool looks on after the Premier League match between Everton FC and Liverpool FC at Goodison Park on March 03, 2019 in Liverpool, United Kingdom.

Marko Grujic and Mo Diame could reportedly leave Liverpool and Newcastle United to join Turkish Super Lig champions Galatasaray.

Galatasaray are hoping to sign Marko Grujic in the summer after scouting the Liverpool midfielder for the last three years, according to Fanatik.

The Serbian international became the first signing of Jurgen Klopp’s Anfield reign in January 2015, joining from Red Star Belgrade in his homeland for a fee of £5.1 million according to the BBC.


But Grujic has struggled to nail down a place in Liverpool’s first-team and is currently playing on loan at Hertha Berlin, after helping Cardiff City earn promotion to the Premier League in the second half of last season.

The 22-year-old has been a revelation in the Bundesliga, earning comparisons with Bayern Munich legend Stefan Effenberg with his powerful bursts from central midfield.

Fanatik believes that Galatasaray would love to bring Grujic to Turkey if Liverpool are once again willing to let him leave on loan.

The Istanbul giants look set to lose their Super Lig crown to Istanbul Basaksehir and it is claimed that manager Fatih Terim is planning a big overhaul next summer.

Grujic is not the only Premier League midfielder linked with Gala. Fanatik adds that they are keen to sign Mo Diame once his contract at Newcastle United expires in July.
