Marko Grujic has spoken out over his protracted move to Liverpool, with the midfielder insisting it is not yet a done deal.
Red Star Belgrade midfielder Grujic has long been linked with a move to Anfield, with manager Jurgen Klopp known to be an admirer of the Serb.
Many outlets, including the Liverpool Echo, have reported that Grujic has agreed a contract ahead of a £5million move, and that he is on the verge of becoming Klopp’s first signing.
In an interview with Serbian outlet Mondo however, Grujic has dismissed such claims.
“I find it strange that foreign media convey information that it’s already completed and I was set for medical examinations,” Grujic said. “The only truth is that I am on vacation.
“I read in the paper that I had signed and it’s all finalised. That’s interesting… because even I did not know.
“I’m not ruling out the possibility that it happens, but I’m not saying if I’m on the brink of signing.”
