Anfield-bound: 'Excellent' €7m powerhouse flying-in to sign for Liverpool. Offer 'accepted'. Confirmation Monday

Last week, Red Star Belgrade publicly confirmed they'd 'accepted' Liverpool's offer for Marko Grucic, and new reports today suggest that a deal for the 'excellent' Serbian midfielder will be confirmed in a couple of days.

The story so far:

Dec 22: The Liverpool Echo claimed that 19-year old Grujic has 'agreed a five-year contract with Liverpool, who will pay a €7m (£5m) transfer fee'.

Dec 23: A statement on Red Star's website seemingly confirmed the deal: "The board accepted the offer from Liverpool to pay the money immediately and the player to stay at Red Star until July 2016".

According to multiple reports over the last 24 hours:

* Grucic has been granted a work permit, and he is 'expected to fly in over the weekend to complete a medical'.

* He will become the Jurgen Klopp's first signing, and Liverpool will officially confirm the deal 'on Monday'.

It'll be another eight or nine months before fans will be able to see Grucic play for Liverpool, so it's hard to get excited about this deal.

Hopefully, this will not be Klopp's only signing of the January transfer window. As recent games show, the club is still struggling to score goals, and in that regard, it's a mistake to rely on Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino, Can, Milner, Origi, and Ibe for the rest of the season.

Bev is having her bone marrow transplant today (Wed19th April). It's a big operation, and she'll be on life support for the duration. The recovery process is going to be very tough and unfortunately carries a great deal of risk with regards to infection, which could be life threatening due to the process requiring her immune system to have been purposefully wiped out beforehand (so that it doesn't f!ght against/reject the transplant). Sadly, the preparation treatment has adversely affected her heart as well and currently it is beating much lower than it should be so we have to hope that soon starts to recover as well. More HERE.
