Liverpool have surprisingly rejected Torino’s offer for Marko Grujic, whom they reportedly want to send on a loan deal this summer.
The Serie A side are hoping they could convince the Reds to agree to their offer for the young striker but their wishes didn’t come true as the Reds swiftly rejected their offer.
Reports claimed that the Torino wanted to sign him up on a season-long loan before they sign him permanently, depending on his performance with them throughout the season.
The same report suggested that Torino are looking at the prospect of signing permanently for £9m but the Reds are not willing to let go of the striker for such ‘low’ price.
It is believed that Cardiff City were leading the race for his signature but the newly promoted Premier League outfits couldn’t reach an agreement with their Premier League counterparts before the close of the transfer period.
It should be recalled that the striker played a major role in Cardiff’s promotion to the Premier League last season as he scored the goals that helped them qualify during playoffs.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has placed a £20m price-tag on his signature but it remains unknown if the player will see suitors ready to pay that much for him.
