Liverpool fans have taken to social media to demand that midfielder Marko Grujić is used as a bargaining chip to sign SS Lazio star Sergej Milinković-Savić this summer.
The latter of the two Serbia internationals has been heavily linked with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico this summer, with Manchester United and Real Madrid reportedly going toe to toe for his signature this summer.
Liverpool’s Grujić is one of the names that Lazio’s hierarchy have shortlisted in their search to replace Milinković-Savić ahead of the new campaign.
The Biancocelesti have already had great success in signing outcast players from Anfield, with former Red Luis Alberto enjoying the best spell of his career in Rome.
With news that Grujić could be on his way to the Serie A this summer, Liverpool fans have questioned if the club couldn’t use the 22-year-old midfielder as part of a deal to sign Milinković-Savić.
But while most Liverpool fans were jokingly suggesting that a swap deal for Milinković-Savić could happen this summer, there were some who worryingly believed that Lazio would be willing to turn down over £130m and just complete a swap deal for Grujić – who has a €5m price tag.
Well, you can always dream, can’t you Liverpool fans?
Liverpool have already completed the signing of AS Monaco star Fabinho this summer, a fantastic addition given the arrival of Naby Keita from RB Leipzig. But the Reds have disappointingly seen deals for Nabil Fekir and Alisson fall through as they look to improve ahead of the new season.
