Liverpool's forgotten man Grujic wanted in transfer by Southampton and West Ham as they offer him career lifeline
WEST HAM and Southampton are reportedly set to battle it out for Liverpool’s Marko Grujic.
The 24-year-old midfielder became Jurgen Klopp’s first signing when joining from Red Star Belgrade in a £5.1m deal in January 2016.
Since then he has failed to shine at Anfield and has been made available for transfer again by his boss following previous loan spells away.
Grujic was handed a rare opportunity to impress for Liverpool last night and he did well as the Reds were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on penalties by Arsenal.
Now both The Telegraph and Daily Mail are claiming the Hammers and Saints want to sign the star.

Both David Moyes and Ralph Hasenhuttl are desperate to bolster their squads before Monday’s transfer deadline.
And Kicker claims that Liverpool will be willing to do business with either as long as they meet the £18m asking price.
The Serbian spent last season on loan with German club Hertha Berlin.
The ace played 29 Bundesliga games and provided four goals and one assist in that period.
