Football Insider claims that alleged West Ham target Marko Grujic is in talks to leave Liverpool for Werder Bremen.
Telegraph journalist Mike McGrath claimed on Twitter a few days ago that Hammers boss David Moyes could attempt to bring the Reds midfielder to the London Stadium.
Central midfield is an area where we really need to bolster before tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline.
Josh Cullen is on the verge of joining Anderlecht (Irish Sun). And Mark Noble and Jack Wilshere are not the players they once were.
Liverpool ace Marko Grujic would have been perfect for us. And Jurgen Klopp is apparently prepared to let the 24-year-old leave for just £18 million (Kicker).
But it seems as though West Ham will miss out on the Serbia international today.
Football Insider claims that Grujic is in talks to leave Anfield in order to join Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen.
And that will be a real blow for the Hammers.
West Ham will now have to turn their attention elsewhere. There are plenty of options available including Chelsea ace Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
And with time running out, David Moyes must act fast.
