Lazar Markovic’s Liverpool career has not gone according to plan, and now it seems he may not even be able to find a loan home for the second half of the 2017-18 season—which would mean another half-season stuck in the stands.
Having only made a single U23 appearance this season and having never played a first team game under Jürgen Klopp, it’s clear Markovic has no future at Anfield. He must move on in order to even have a chance at resurrecting his career.
Looks like Lazar Markovic to Swansea is off but Liverpool still looking to loan him out elsewhere prior to tonight's deadline. #LFC— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) January 31, 2018
For a time, it looked like he would, with Wolfsburg and Swansea both eager to sign him. Wolfsburg, though, couldn’t agree a permanent deal with Liverpool and—if the move was to be a loan—so Liverpool looked to send him to Swansea.
Swansea, though, had other priorities and now do not have room for him. Meanwhile, the transfer window has already closed in Germany, meaning a move to Wolfsburg is off the table even if Liverpool were willing to reconsider it.
Liverpool are reportedly still trying to find a loan home for the Serbian winger, but as of now it looks as though he won’t be leaving Liverpool this month after all—not on a permanent deal and not even on loan.
