West Ham should consider a move to sign Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic with Jurgen Klopp allegedly keen to sell the 24-year-old (The Mirror).

The Hammers’ desperate need for defensive and attacking reinforcements is overshadowing their lack of depth in the middle of the park.

If Declan Rice or Tomas Soucek either get injured or suffer a loss of form, we will be in real trouble.

Mark Noble is well past his best and Josh Cullen is totally unproven at Premier League level, despite having impressed recently.

And Grujic would be an excellent addition to the West Ham squad. He would certainly improve our strength in depth and provide much more stringent competition for Rice and Soucek, keeping the Hammers duo on their toes.

The Mirror reckon Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is willing to let the 24-year-old ace leave Anfield for around £20 million this summer.

And if the Hammers can barter that fee down slightly, he could be a great value signing for us.

 

Stats

The Serbia international spent last season on loan with Hertha Berlin.

The defensive midfielder played 29 Bundesliga games and racked up four goals and one assist in the process (Who Scored).

In those outings, Grujic averaged 1.9 tackles, 0.8 interceptions, 2.3 clearances and 1.5 dribbles per game. He made 37.6 passes on average per game with a completion rate of 78.7% (Who Scored).

The Serbian ace is a top class player and at 24, he fits perfectly into the age profile of players David Moyes wants to bring to the London Stadium.

With Reds boss Klopp ready to let him go, the timing is perfect for the Hammers to make their move.

And if the Scot does sign the Liverpool midfielder, he could go on to be a real hit at West Ham.
