Porto midfielder Marko Grujic could return to the Premier League as he formerly played for Liverpool here.

Sport Witness reported that Fulham have been impressed by Grujic’s performances for Porto. Moreover, it even said that Fulham’s boss Marco Silva would like to have him in his team next season.

The report adds that the newly-promoted Premier League team has submitted a bid of € 18 million to sign Grujic this summer.

When the Serbian international joined Liverpool back in 2016 for €7m, he was projected to be a long-term investment from Red Star Belgrade.

However, during his time at Anfield, he could only play 16 matches. Moreover, his stay at Liverpool was dominated by his loan spells at clubs like Cardiff City, Hertha BSC, and Porto.

However, in Porto, he seems to have got his footing back. He spent two loan spells at Porto, where he featured in 75 competitive matches.

In the process, he established himself as an important part of Porto’s midfield.

Could Marko Grujic make a return to the Premier League?

Grujic is still not a regular starter at the Portuguese powerhouses. However, his aggression and work ethic is said to be matching that of the Premier League’s playing style.

Moreover, Fulham are currently bidding for Joao Palhinha. However, the Premier League club would want to bolster their midfield ranks by signing Grujic.

Moreover, Sporting CP are also interested in Palhinha. That has made Grujic a primary alternative to Palhinha.

Fulham boss Marco Silva moreover, believes that Grujic possesses the quality for the team’s second line of press. This he says could lead to a long way for them to survive in the Premier League this season.

However, Porto has valued the player higher than the offered €18m by Fulham. Therefore, acquiring him could be tricky for the English club.

Moreover, Porto could end up holding Grujic. They believe that the midfielder’s valuation could rise if he could give some good performances for his national team Serbia in the upcoming World Cup.
