Red Star Belgrade midfielder confirms talks
Liverpool are in formal talks with Red Star Belgrade midfielder Marko Grujic.
The star has been likened to Chelsea‘s Nemanja Matic, and because of that, he has previously been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, but he’s confirmed that he’s in transfer talks with Liverpool instead.
The Serbian was subject of a bid from Chelsea, worth around £3million, but according to reports today, Red Star Belgrade want around £5m for the midfielder.
Scouts from Anfield went to watch Grujic in action recently and even held formal talks with him and his agent after the game, which has now been revealed and confirmed by the midfielder.

“I’ll try to respect the club, the fans and the general public, but I think that for myself I have to choose the best environment, where I will get the chance to play and where I work with good coaches in good conditions.”
