The Liverpool loanee has long-term designs on making it at Anfield it seems.

Liverpool fans on Twitter appear to have earmarked Marko Grujic as James Milner's long-term replacement at Anfield.

The Serbian midfielder made headlines this morning after revealing to The Echo that he wants a long-term future with the Reds.

Grujic, who was Jurgen Klopp's first signing as Liverpool manager, is enjoying a second season-long loan at Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga at the moment.

But looking forward, the former Red Star Belgrade talent, signed for £5 million in January of 2016 [The Echo], wants to be back on Merseyside.

 

Here's how Liverpool fans reacted:

Grujic certainly has the talent to replace Milner - who turns 34 in January - and lord knows that Klopp is a fantastic man-manager, one who could well take his game to the next level.

The downside of being a Liverpool-owned midfielder is the competition, with Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum also at Klopp's disposal right now.

That being said, he certainly seems like a hungry and ambitious player, qualities which can take you far in football. Just ask the player who the supporters tip him to replace.
