Imminent Liverpool signing Grujic to take Gerrard's famous number 8

Liverpool's brand new signing Marko Grujic will be taking up the number 8 jersey at Anfield, which was formerly adorned by legendary midfielder Steven Gerrard.

Grujic is set to become the first signing for Jurgen Klopp as manager of Liverpool and the Serbian midfielder will arrive from Red Star Belgrade with a lot of expectations at Anfield.

Now to add further pressure on the shoulders of Grujic, it has been revealed that the 19-year-old will be donning the iconic number 8 jersey on Merseyside.

Red Star's sporting director Zvezdan Terzic confirmed on Tuesday that Grujic would join the Reds for £5million 'within three days' and would be taking Gerrard's famous shirt.
