West Ham and Southampton are considering loans for Liverpool’s Marko Grujic ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline.
Both clubs are looking for midfielders and have the Serbian among the options being considered.
Grujic, 24, has spent the last two seasons on loan at Hertha Berlin in Germany where he made 54 appearances, scoring nine times and scoring three more goals.

He has played twice this season, appearing in both Liverpool’s Carabao Cup games against Lincoln and Arsenal.
Both clubs are also among the teams interested in Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
But while Southampton expect the price to be steep due to the England midfielder’s salary, West Ham are ready to continue their pursuit of the 24-year-old.
West Ham also had an offer for Club Brugge midfielder and captain Hans Vanaken rejected.

Meanwhile, West Ham remains in talks with Jack Wilshere and hopes to come to an agreement on his release.
Wilshere has less than 12 months on the three-year contract, worth around £ 100,000 a week, which he signed when he joined for free after leaving Arsenal in 2018.
However, he was limited to just 18 appearances due to injury.
West Ham would ideally like to find a buyer for Wilshere who would allow them to collect some money.
However, if there are no takers before the window closes, they aim to find a compromise to terminate his contract by mutual agreement.
