Liverpool ‘drastically’ drop Lazar Markovic price

Liverpool are willing to do whatever they can to offload one of their forgotten men this summer.

According to a report by Het Nieuwsblad, Anderlecht are thought to be interested in bringing Lazar Markovic back to Belgium and the Reds have dropped their asking price ‘drastically’ to try and get a deal done.

However, the report does also add that the player’s wage demands could be a possible stumbling block for the Jupiler League outfit.

The Serbian winger has had a torrid time since arriving at Anfield from Benfica in 2014 and has spent more time away from the club than actually being in Merseyside.

The 24-year-old is obviously surplus to requirements at Liverpool, having failed to feature for Jurgen Klopp and should look to make a move away from the Premier League if he wants to get back to playing regular football.

The Verdict:

Liverpool’s decision to ‘drastically’ reduce their asking price in an attempt to offload Markovic is a good idea.

However, there will be concern that the £7.2million-rated winger, as per Transfermarkt, could still remain at the club beyond Friday’s deadline.

With his wage demands thought to be an issue, the Serbian should look to reduce them for the sake of his career and be able to get regular football back under his belt with Anderlecht.
