Already Confirmed by the Club: 21-year-old Fantastic Winger Will Join Liverpool in Summer

Lazar Markovic joined Turkish club Feberbahce last summer after dropping out of favor at Anfield at the start of the season.

Already impressing in his season-long spell with the Turkish club, Markovic has reportedly earned a place in Jürgen Klopp’s next season’s long term plans for the Reds.

The 21-year-old has made himself a key player under Victor Pereira already making 19 appearances so far.

The Serbian winger played 34 times for Liverpool after his £20 million move from Benefica, but managed to make 11 starts for the Anfield outfit.

Markovic has still puzzled over the deterioration of his relationship with former boss Brendan Rodgers, and has blamed Rodgers for his move away from Anfield by claiming the Northern Irishman “changed”.

I had no problem with Brendan Rodgers and we had a bond until, for some reason that remains a mystery to me, he changed,” Markovic reportedly told Turkish newspaper Fanatik.

“He stopped playing me and then at the start of the season he didn’t even include me in the squad, and nobody explained to me what was going on or what his plans were, so I decided to leave.”

The Serbia international has impressed during his stay at Fenerbahce and could face Liverpool this season, with both clubs still involved in the Europa League.

“We want to win both games but I actually have my sight set on the final and that is my aim,” Markovic said. We know what we are capable of and know we are more than able to make it to the final.”

Meanwhile, According to Turkish newspaper Sabah, Fenerbahce have revealed that Liverpool do not want to sell Markovic.

It is unclear whether that is under the instruction of Jürgen Klopp, who is yet to manage Markovic and could yet get him into next season’s plans. Liverpool have reportedly monitored Markovic in every game this season.
