Serbian winger Lazar Markovic has clung to Liverpool despite Reds eager to sell him off after he’s been considered as too feeble too weak for the Premier League.
Markovic is “brilliant to work with” praised Reds u23s manager Neil Critchley, who admitted that Markovic is “great with the young lads,” adding, “he is humble and he listens to what’s asked of him.”
Markovic is below the pecking order at Kirby, and Liverpool have been looking to offload the youngster.
The club have been looking to take him out of their wage bill for a long time now.
Talks of interest for the player has been playing about in the media that top clubs in the Chinese Super League are chasing after the player.
Markovic contract at Anfield is set to expire this June, which is understood to be worth around £50,000. That pay is not that huge, but the player’s reluctance to leave has remained a lice in their hair.
The player who joined from Benfica in 2015 around 20 million pounds made his last appearance for Liverpool senior team against QPR back in May 2015.
Anderlecht was keen on signing the player, but Markovic turned down a move to join the Belgian outfit, fessing out that “money was not an issue.”
Nonetheless, Liverpool are hopeful that can get him into a new club before the window closes.
