Liverpool have completed the signing of Serbia midfielder Marko Grujic from Red Star Belgrade.

Grujic, who represents Jurgen Klopp's first signing as manager of Liverpool, will return to Red Star on loan for the remainder of the season. 

At just 19-years-old, Grujic looks set for a bright future in the game; with pace, energy and natural ability, the midfielder should add a great deal to the Liverpool ranks from the start of next season.

Klopp is certainly pleased with his first signing, claiming that the teenager has a number of key attributes to succeed in the game.  

As reported on the club's official website, the charismatic coach stated: “We’re very pleased because Marko is a big talent and we’ve seen him a lot of times.

Klopp pleased 

“When I came here, our scouts showed me some footage of a very skilled player from Red Star Belgrade. We watched it, we spoke to him, we met each other – he’s a good boy, a young boy but plays an important role at the moment at Red Star, who are the best team in Serbia.

“To describe him, I would say he’s a tall boy, but quick and good at technical things. He can play passes and can dribble. But he is young, so he has to develop. He will do this, so everything is okay.”

Grujic excited 

Grujic is also understandably pleased to have signed for Liverpool and has insisted that he can't wait to play for the club at Anfield. 

The talented youngster stated: “I’m very excited and so proud to be here and a member of Liverpool Football Club. I can’t wait to get started, play at Anfield and train at Melwood.

“I was thinking about my progress in my next period and decided it was good for me to come here and try to be the best I can.

“I want to play in front of one of the loudest set of fans in Europe at Anfield.

“I also like the atmospheres at other stadiums, the crowds are very good. I like to play under pressure and that’s why I’ve come here – because it brings out the best in me.”

Of course, Liverpool fans will now have to wait patiently to see their new man in action, but it's certainly an exciting coup for the long-term. 

Reds fans will no doubt be hoping to see a few more arrivals before the close of the transfer window. 

Reaction 

Unsurprisingly, Liverpool fans have reacted on social media and they appear to be slightly disappointed that Grujic won't be playing for the club this season.
