Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic is all set to leave Anfield in favor of Fenerbahce. The Serbian is currently on loan to the Turkish side and he wants to make the move a permanent one in the summer.
According to Shoot, Liverpool are willing to cut their losses on the player and allow him to leave for as little as £7.3million.
Markovic had signed for Liverpool back in July 2014 for a whopping fee of 20million. At that time, he was dubbed as the hottest property in European football, however, he never really hit the heights under Brendan Rodgers.
In total, he made 34 appearances, in which he managed 3 goals and an assist. Following the disappointing run at Anfield, Markovic is keen to seal a move away from Liverpool.
The news comes as a shock as Jurgen Klopp was eager to work with him before he made a call on his future.
However, contrary to those reports, Turkish media is filling up with Markovic’s permanent move in the summer.
This would indeed be a great loss for Liverpool, after Markovic was seen as an explosive signing which drastically failed over the course of last year or so.
