Jurgen Klopp's first signing for Liverpool after he took over the reins from Brendan Rodgers has arrived at Anfield and has also begun training at the club. Marko Grujic has completed his loan spell with boyhood club Red Star Belgrade and returned to Merseyside to begin his spell with the Reds ahead of pre-season.
The Serbia U21 international was signed from Red Star Belgrade during the January transfer window, but remained on loan with his hometown club until the end of the 2015/16 campaign. The midfielder has since confirmed his return to Anfield with a series of posts on his official social media accounts and was also present for Liverpool's draw against Chelsea on 11 May.
The 20-year-old is likely to be a key part of Klopp's plans for next season after an impressive campaign for Red Star. They were crowned champions of the Serbian league with Grujic contributing with six goals and seven assists from midfield in 27 appearances.
"My first visit to Anfield, great atmosphere tonight," Grujic said via his official Instagram account following his first visit to the Merseyside club.
The central midfielder, who has been branded in some quarters as the Serbian Steven Gerrard, has reportedly agreed a four-year deal with the Merseyside club. Klopp had praised the midfielder following his arrival in January, and admitted that the club had extensively scouted him before making a move, which shows that he is set to play a part with the Liverpool first-team next season.
"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," Klopp had said following his transfer from Red Star in January, as quoted on Liverpool's official site.
