In what seems a shock move for most fans of Chelsea who have been following their club transfer plans ahead of the winter transfer window.
Report has emerged that winter target Marko Grujic of Red Star Belgrade has completed a £5.1 million move to premier league rival Liverpool.
The highly rated Serbian midfielder put pen to paper on a four-years deal, but was however loaned back to Red Star Belgrade till the end of the season.
Speaking to the press concerning the new signing, Liverpool boss Kloop express his joy for his first signing since he moved to Anfield when he said:
“We’re very pleased because Marko is a big talent and we’ve seen him a lot of times. Said Kloop.
“When I came here, our scouts showed me some footage of a very skilled player from Red Star Belgrade.
“We watched it, we spoke to him, we met each other – he’s a good boy, a young boy but plays an important role at the moment at Red Star, who are the best team in Serbia.
“To describe him, I would say he’s a tall boy, but quick and good at technical things. He can play passes and can dribble.
“But he is young, so he has to develop. He will do this, so everything is okay.”
The highly rated star helped his national team to win the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in last year June.
The Serbian was also a major target for both Chelsea and Italian giant Inter Millan.
