Werder Bremen boss Florian Kohfeldt has not ruled out the possibility of his side rekindling their interest in the highly-rated Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic.
Marko has been on loan at Hertha Berlin since last season and the German club extended his stay by one more year on another loan deal last summer.
There were several other teams who were interested in the star, but the Serbian midfielder preferred to continue at Olympiastadion Berlin over moving to any other team on loan.
Werder Bremen were very interested in signing the former Red Star Belgrade ace, but they ultimately lost out to their fellow German outfit.
Florian admits that Werder Bremen could revive their interest in Grujic in the future but for the moment it’s not something they are thinking about.
Die Werderaner chief indicated that he expects the youngster to potentially head back to parent club Reds at the end of the season.
“You cannot rule anything out. But that would be pure speculation to think about,” Florian Kohfeldt said in a press conference when asked about Marko.
“He is a very good player, but he is now a Hertha player and possibly a Liverpool player in the summer. This is not an issue for us now.”
The Serbian has started all seven Bundesliga matches for Hertha Berlin this season and has also scored two goals and grabbed one assist in the process.
AC Milan are keen on the idea of signing Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana, according to a report.
The playmaker has struggled for game time under the German manager Jurgen Klopp so far this campaign.
He has made just two appearances for the Reds, coming in the Carabao cup versus MK Dons and in the PL clash against Manchester United.
The 31-year-old star will be out of contract at the end of the term but the Premier League giants have an option to extend it by a further year.
A recent report from Football Insider stated that the Premier League side do indeed aim to activate that clause, with a view to selling the former Southampton ace at the end of the season.
According to Calciomercato.it, Rossoneri are one of two clubs in Serie A who are interested in the idea of landing Lallana.
The 34-time England international Lallana has the experience that would serve a young team like AC Milan, who could apparently make a move in the winter transfer market.
However, SS Lazio are also linked with a swoop, with Lallana’s former team-mate Lucas Leiva having made the move to the capital two years ago.
In other news, Tottenham Hotspur star Toby Alderweireld believes that his side’s upcoming game with the Reds should be seen as a “big opportunity” for his misfiring side.
Speaking after Spurs’ draw with Watford on Saturday, Toby said: “Sunday is a big opportunity. Look, we’re a team, let’s go again. Let’s go, like that second half. [Give] Our best, it’s all we can do.”
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to bring in Timo Werner ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, according to the latest reports.
Liverpool have long been connected with a move for the RB Leipzig striker, with Jurgen Klopp said to be a huge admirer. Werner has already netted eight times for Leipzig in all competitions this campaign.
The Express claim Solskjaer has stepped up his rumoured interest in Werner as Manchester United prepare for an active January transfer window.
Solskjaer regards Timo as a long-term solution to his misfiring frontline and would prefer to land the 23-year-old rather than the likes of veteran centre-forward Mario Mandzukic.
United will find it difficult to convince RB Leipzig to part ways with Werner mid-way through a campaign and it appears Solskjaer will have to wait until the summer transfer window to make his move for him.
The flagman on the German football, Bayern Munich has also been touted with an interest in Werner and the Red Devils could face competition from the Bundesliga champions, as well as the Anfield outfit if they move for the striker.
United are expected to sign one striker in January after injuries to Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
