      Welcome to Liverpool Football Club Marko.

      Reds complete Marko Grujic deal

      Liverpool Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of Serbia midfielder Marko Grujic.

      The 19-year-old put pen to paper on a contract with the Reds at Melwood today to tie up a transfer from Red Star Belgrade, where he will immediately return on loan until the end of the season.

      Grujic currently represents Serbia at U21 level and was also a member of their World Cup-winning U20 squad in 2015.

      Upon completing the deal, he told Liverpoolfc.com: “I’m very excited and so proud to be here and a member of Liverpool Football Club. I can’t wait to get started, play at Anfield and train at Melwood.

      “I was thinking about my progress in my next period and decided it was good for me to come here and try to be the best I can.

      “I want to play in front of one of the loudest set of fans in Europe at Anfield.

      “I also like the atmospheres at other stadiums, the crowds are very good. I like to play under pressure and that’s why I’ve come here – because it brings out the best in me.”

      Grujic’s form in 2015-16 has helped elevate Red Star to the top of the Serbian Superliga, where they entered the current winter break with a 25-point cushion over second-placed FK Cukaricki.

      So far this term, he’s netted five goals in 21 league appearances for Red Star after making his debut aged just 17 in 2013.

      In joining Liverpool, he becomes Jürgen Klopp’s first signing as Reds boss.

      Klopp said: “We’re very pleased because Marko is a big talent and we’ve seen him a lot of times.

      “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.”

      Jürgen Klopp: Why I made Marko Grujic my first Liverpool signing
      JURGEN KLOPP believes he has bought a big talent in Marko Grujic after making the midfielder his first signing at Liverpool.


      Jürgen Klopp has made Marko Grujic his first signing
      The 19-year-old today completed a £5.1m move from Red Star Belgrade but will spend the remainder of the season on loan at the Serbian club.

      Starsport understands that Klopp personally met Grujic to persuade him to move to Anfield over joining Chelsea or Inter Milan while the Reds also saw off bids from Stuttgart, Anderlecht, Zenit St Petersburg and CSKA Moscow.

      And Klopp believes Grujic has a bright future ahead of him.

      Facts you should know about new Liverpool signing Marko Grujic

      Born: 13 April 1996 (age 19) Height: 1.91m Position: Midfielder Started his footballing education at Red Star Belgrade as a very young boy Made his first-team debut for the club at the age of 17 in 2013 Went out on loan to second division side Kolubara for part of 2014 Cemented his place in the Red Star first-team last season Has so far netted five goals in 21 appearances this campaign Was part of the Under-20 Serbian team that won the World Cup, beating Brazil in the final in June His style of play has been compared to Reds legend Steven Gerrard Has also been compared to Chelsea's Nemanja Matic He wears the No. 8 shirt for Red Star As well as being capable defensively, Grujic is noted for his attacking prowess He is the son of a football journalist Grujic has previously said he wants to play football in England
      “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”
      Jürgen Klopp
      Klopp said: “We’re very pleased because Marko is a big talent and we’ve seen him a lot of times.

      “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.”

      can he play CB and does he know where Exeter is
      He is quite a lad very imposing for a young man. Now what happens is he due for loan or will he be with the first team?

      I'd never heard of him a few weeks ago never mind know what he's like as a footballer.

      Plenty of 'expert's' on Twitter though.
