Serbian Winger Linked With Anfield Move – Why Lazar Markovic Could Be Perfect For Liverpool

According to ESPN, Benfica’s 20-year-old Serbian winger Lazar Markovic is expected to undergo a medical at Liverpool after a fee of around £25 million was recently agreed between the two clubs. For someone so young, he has an excellent eye for goal and has a good amount of European experience.  The fact that Brendan Rodgers is willing so spend so much money on the youngster is evidence of his quality. 

Markovic found the net 13 times in 46 appearances for Partizan Belgrade before making the switch Portugal. He moved to Benfica in 2013, becoming a key part of their Primeira Liga-winning team and their charge to the 2014 Europa League final, where they suffered a cruel defeat to Sevilla on penalties.

The Serbia international can vary his play in different situations, meaning he would provide the versatility that the Liverpool boss craves so much. His natural pace and flair scares defenders, as well as his ability to change the game with the flick of a ball. Having Markovic on one side and Raheem Sterling on the other can result in good things for the club, and is a mouth-watering prospect for a team undertaking their first Champions League campaign since the 2009/2010 season.

Brendan Rodgers is sure to add to his squad over the summer, with a list of original transfer targets being added to by players shining at the World Cup.  Exactly who the Reds get is yet to be determined, but one thing for certain is that Lazar Markovic would be a perfect addition for Liverpool.
