Marko Grujic is set for another loan move to Cardiff City and a deal could be finalised next week, according to Wales Online.
Grujic joined the Bluebirds for the latter half of the 2017/18 season as they secured promotion and caught the eye in midfield.
He has attracted interest from Italy, with Lazio among those pursuing a permanent move, but Liverpool would prefer a temporary switch and know that Grujic can garner valuable Premier League experience at the Cardiff City Stadium.
At present, the two clubs are engaged in drawn-out negotiations over the terms of the loan as Liverpool look for assurances about his game time, but the move is considered an inevitability.
Grujic’s hopes of breaking into the first-team at Anfield this season were dealt a significant blow when Fabinho completed his move from Monaco, nudging him further down the pecking order.
The player has not featured in either of Liverpool’s pre-season friendlies, granted additional time-off after exiting the World Cup at the group stage with Serbia.
Liverpool have already loaned out Adam Bogdan and Ovie Ejaria, and the likes of Harry Wilson, Sheyi Ojo and Ben Woodburn could also be handed an opportunity to impress elsewhere.
