Jurgen Klopp will complete his first signing as Liverpool manager, after Marko Grujic completes his medical with the club in Merseyside on Monday.
Liverpool have already agreed a Â£5milion transfer fee with Red Star Belgrade for the midfielder, and now the move is on the brink of completion. Grujic will take a medical at the club on Monday and once that particular aspect of the transfer is successfully completed, an official announcement will be made.
The Reds have also agreed personal terms with the 19-year-old midfielder, who was linked with the likes of Inter Milan and Chelsea, before agreeing to sign for Liverpool.
Klopp made a personal call to Grujic in order to complete the transfer, after the Liverpool manager's Serbian assistant Zeljko Buvac recommended the player highly, according to The Guardian.
Grujic also confirmed his imminent move in a post on his official Facebook page, with the midfielder claiming he will be a Liverpool player on Monday.
The teenager, though, will not influence Liverpool's fortunes this season, with the playmaker set to be sent back to Red Star Belgrade on loan for the rest of the season. How big an impact he can make at Anfield, when he returns for the new season next summer, only time will tell.
Klopp could use all the creative forces at his disposal at the moment, after another abject performance from Liverpool led to a 2-0 loss at the hands of West Ham United in the English Premier League on Saturday. Klopp laid into his players for not giving 100% in the match, but the German might also be thinking of strengthening the squad in January, with the transfer window now open.
However, signing impact players in the winter window is never easy, but Liverpool do need a striker who can stay off the treatment table and give them 10-15 goals in the second half of the season.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with a move, as is expected, considering Klopp signed the Gabon international during his time at Borussia Dortmund. Arsenal are also interested in the speedy forward, but Dortmund are unlikely to sell midway through the season.
