Loads of Leeds fans have been discussing a move for Marko Grujic, after Neil Warnock admitted Cardiff may be out of the running.
Leeds are absolutely desperate for a new central midfielder, and a loan move for Liverpool’s Grujic could be perfect.
Adam Forshaw is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury, and Ronaldo Vieira confirmed his move to Sampdoria this week.
That’s why a loan move for Grujic could make perfect sense, as by the time the loan is up Forshaw will have returned to full fitness.
The tough tackling Liverpool youngster has been heavily linked with a return to Cardiff, but the Bluebirds’ boss seems to have ruled it out.
“I have missed out on a couple of targets waiting for him, it is disappointing as everything was agreed with Liverpool. But sometimes fate intervenes,” Warnock said (11:37).
The Cardiff boss said a contract issue was stopping the deal, but it could simply just be Liverpool tying him down to a longer deal before sending him out again, so Marcelo Bielsa should definitely try his luck.
The Reds are unlikely to find a place for the Serbian international after the signings of Fabinho and Naby Keita, and the overwhelming majority of Leeds fans want a loan swoop.
