All is quiet on the transfer front so far. Well, other than the only player likely to move: the potentially departing Lazar Markovic.
It's 50-50 with Markovic, Josh. Ki won't be leaving, I've been told. CC rates him highly.— Stuart James (@StuartJamesGNM) January 31, 2018
“[Swansea City] want to loan - not sign - Markovic from Liverpool,” James clarified in another tweet.
With Markovic’s contract winding down next year, Liverpool will be looking to recoup some of their £20 million fee for the once-promising Serbian international. But a loan deal could at least make a permanent deal away from Merseyside more likely in the summer.
Since joining the Reds in 2014, Markovic failed to impress under Brendan Rodgers, and Jurgen Klopp wouldn’t give him a look in, either. During his time “here,” he has been loaned out to Fenerbahçe, Sporting CP, and Hull City, scoring 3 goals in a combined 32 appearances in his various loan spells.
So maybe a loan deal is the best we can do for Lazarbeams.
