Share

This is turning out to be one hell of a summer for Liverpool. Brendan Rodgers had addressed the need of bolstering the squad last season only, and he was backed with cash this summer to buy players of his wish, as he embarks on a journey to take Liverpool back to its glory days.

Markovic €25m forward set to complete Liverpool move, official announcement today

There is a genuine air of positivity among the Reds supporters; the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona hasn’t been able to dampen the spirit. And why not? Liverpool have already signed three players and are looking to invest more in the squad.

According to reports from A Bola today, Liverpool will officially announce the signing of Benfica forward Lazar Markovic today. The 20-year-old was a reported target of Chelsea but the Serbian have chosen Liverpool instead to further his career. He would cost in the region of €25m/£25m (based on which report you check) and is expected to sign a five-year-deal at the Anfield club. 

Yesterday, O Jogo claimed that Markovic has asked Liverpool to hand him the no 50 shirt, which he used to wear at Benfica. He was spotted in Liverpool yesterday and so can expect the deal to be announced anytime within today.

Benfica will receive €12.25m from this transfer, as they own only 50% of the player’s economic rights, while rest will shared among third party investors.

  10. Brendan perfect n nice work ! Finally wil sign markovic , pls will need arda turan to put on d shirt of suarez No.7 n moreno signing dis week

  11. The perfect replacement for Suarez in my opinion would be Luis Muriel he is only 23 and is going to be world class if you see him play on utube you will see what I mean and he will be a great investment

  12. He will be a good signing because I believe in Rodgers, to no.7 jersey we do not play for what is been written at the back but the courage and inspiration i.e togetherness

  13. Typical Lpool, sell a world class player and buy in some muppet from the sticks.
    Even with Euro football, Lpool can’t attract top players. Manure will be doing the same for the next few years. Lol.
