    Since you are using ASP.NET Core 3.1 version so gRPC will be a perfect choice. Here is the Implementation of gRPC in ASP.NET Core article.

    while gRPC is a great library, typically faster than REST, and a contract based replacement for WCF, it has some restrictions. it requires HTTP/2 so it not callable from a browser (ajax).  Also legacy systems may not be able to call it either. 

    as always, you should define your requirements, before picking a technology.

    Requirement is wcf is getting use in project but lots of wcf attribute like contract , servicehost all comes under system.servicemodel which is deprecated in .net core

    Requirements would include the calling clients. What technology do they support? Also any network restrictions? Is contract support required? What security is required?

    Webapi REST or GraphQL are the .net core replacements for wcf, but do not include contract or binary support. While not supported by default, xml can be added to webapi. gRPC is open source and has more wcf features but requires http/2 support by the server and the calling clients.

    I typically use webapi REST with swagger. the swagger support gives a client code generator and documentation
