Lazar Markovic

Liverpool already agreed to sell Lazar Markovic to Anderlecht for £2.9 million fee, while the Serbian striker flew to Belgium to complete the deal, albeit, the deal was abortive as it was called off before the deadline day.

Liverpool bought Markovic for £20million from Benfica in 2014. The reds will now settle to offload him with a 50 per cent sell-on clause in the deal.

Markovic earlier turned down a transfer deal from PAOK because he could not agree to personal terms with them.

If there is a need to mention any player who is still struggling to settle in different clubs then we would tick Lazar Markovic. His performance has not proven worthy of a striker.

The Serbian has spent loan spell with Hull City, Sporting Lisbon and Fenerbahce. He scored 3 goals in 34 appearances.

Liverpool players are passionate with the ball, appearing restlessly on the pitch but it seemed Lazar’s slow pace is not the right calling for the reds especially under a rugged and suave coach as Klopp.

The quality Marco has is basically to contribute and assist, but kicking the ball into the net is way far for him to adapt.

The Serbian striker will look forward to join the Belgian side next year where he scored one goal in eight appearances. He believes he can be rejuvenated and as well become the special talent that caught the eyes of Brendan Rogers while he was in Benfica.
