Liverpool are on the brink of completing a €25m deal for Lazar Markovic from Benfica, after the player flew to Liverpool over the weekend to complete his medical.

Portugal newspapers claimed this morning that the Serbian will be officially announced today, but it seems we may have to wait till tomorrow for an official confirmation.

The 20-year-old Serbian will be expected to fill the void left by Luis Suarez, who will join Barcelona in the next few days. He has signed a five-year-contract at Liverpool while will wear the no 50 shirt, as per his wish.

The Serbian will become the fourth major signing of the season for Liverpool, after the Reds secured the signings of Rickie Lambert, Emre Can and Adam Lallana. Liverpool thought to have paid €25m for his signature, of which Benfica will receive 50% of the amount while the rest would go to third party investors.

  1. I m really happy with the first four signings have seen this guy play and he really looks a player he might not have scored enough goals but his pace and trickery along with his ball control is pure class and brendan will make sure he scores at least 10 this season in league.

    • well suarez couldn’t get the job done last season and hats off to brendan rodgers cause i’ve seen these guys play and i think he’s just found what liverpool needs. also luis van gaal has arrived at manchester united and i think he’ll be an amazing manager as he has proved in the world cup. 😀

      • ‘suarez couldn’t get the job done last season’ What on earth are you talking about? Top scorer, won all the awards. Our defence was the problem. Markovic might be a great player but unless we improve our defence, we’ll have the same problems.

      • F**k u 4 talking about man united,we liverpool fan dont give fuck about manchester or it manager.liverpool 4 ever.ynwa

  2. He’s young, he’s talented and he’s hungry for success. Just the type of player we want!

  3. More mature players than these babies pls. Look at what city are getting compare to what lfc are getting, light-weight players who can be blown off at anytime and unproven players,i hope it does not turn out to be an Aspas or carrol. I hope for best from these guys though,gud luck.

  4. I will like to see Marco reus in Liverpool squad he aloud ideal replacement for Suarez rather than bony and Rodriquez

  5. One thing is for certain. He needs a bloody haircut.

    Lucas and Countinho worked that out quickly…this isnt bloody Spain, Italy or Portugal so get it sorted lad.

    welcome to Liverpool…ynwa

  6. Am very much impressed by four signings so far, but the next signing shold be taken so fast so as get on pre-season training. Reus i§ one of the best player in Germany so £45m i§ not too much to aquire i§ service. Please BR you’ve been doing a great job so make sure u complete Reus signing this week. Well done my manager. We’ll Never Walk Alone.

  7. Bring Marco to Anfield please….. Liverpool are full of surprises, the same way we inversted Torres’ money is the same way we’ll do just now for Luis. We won’t even miss him, i wasn’t hurt in any way by his departure. You’ll Never Walk Alone.

  8. Brendan pls wil need good striker that can build the club so strong , striker benzema , cavani

  9. So far so good, but pls boss BR, can u sort out that back 4 defensive pls. I knw that money is not an isaue here now, so pls we need atleast 1CB, 1LB, 1RB =(difenders)
    1 world class play maker, 1proven striker and 1more world class winger who’s capable of playing left n right wingers. Sir B.R, if u can sortout those positions then next season is definatly ours. BPL title, FA cup & UCL final

  10. Those 4 players including L. Markovic have signed already, and add 6 more players with specific positions, therefore we will have 10 new signings in total for this summer. Done deal. I would like to see wilfried Bony to combine wit Sturridge at Anfield

  11. Yes I agree. Brendan MUST spend money on ready made replacement, and Marco looks the part also very creative YNWA

  12. i have a concern: which defensive midfielder have we bought since we let Lucas go? Gerrard is old n we need another world class defensive midfieder now!

  13. We Need Marco Reus To Replace Suarez. We Are Impressed By The Four Signings. Lfc Ynwa

  14. Suarez’s move must hurt us but the Club will do better hopeful but again Owners Henry n his counterpart must pull up.

  15. I am happy with the four (five including Origi) signings we have already it i think we need maybe 3-4 more. I would like to see us buy Hummels/Garay, Moreno, Bony (on the bench), Lukaku/Benzema/Mandzukic (to start). Then possibly after the sales of (sadly) Agger, Reina, Lucas, (not sadly) Aspas, maybe Borini, Assaidi and Coates, we might have enough to dip back into the market and snatch Reus but I think it is more important to get at least 3 of the players listed above before we go after Reus. I say this because we need to sort out the defence and find a replacement for Suarez before we go looking for more midfielders. We already have Coutinho, Sterling, Lallana, Markovic, Hendo, Allen, Alberto and now Suso is back so midfield is not a priority right now.

  16. We need to sign at least 3 defenders the argentine gutirez/caulker/kylewalker

  17. Now that the goals machine is gone(Suarez) we need a perfect successor like Reus,Benzema or Carvan.Another concern is the Deffece line which is weak. Some concrete needs to be poured.
    BR, with the 4 signings made,there are good so far.

  18. i just hope they see all these comments at anfield. we seriously need to sign Marco Reus, Lars Bender or Axel Witsel, Moreno or Daley Blind and Lovren. offload the likes of Aspas, Borini, Assaidi, Coates, Brad Jones. and the LFC team will be solid to compete. REUS AND 2 DEFENDERS, should be LFC’S priority.

  19. I ll like us to buy strikers atlest 2 to replace luise because this season there ll be a great challenge both in champion league & Epl

  20. Yes sign reus benzema left back center back and besT centeral midfeild that is enough 4 us dnt sign flops like before viva lfc you will never work alone
