Drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern, the Liverpool fans in a miserable Mersey malaise are still not over THAT loss to Swansea City as they watch their title hopes begin to fade away.
While this season has been so entertaining at times, the Reds retain a relatively fragile look defensively and our punters believe they lack what it takes to see out a proper challenge on Chelsea. So, transfer reports from the Liverpool Echo have at least taken their minds off the loss.
According to their report, winger Lazar Markovic is being weighed up for a move to Premier League strugglers Hull City as he gears up to return from an ill-fated loan stint with Sporting Lisbon. Upon his return to Anfield, the Serbian is reportedly unlikely to integrate with the first-team once more.
The Tigers are understood to be keen on the 22-year-old as they bid to stave off relegation under new boss Marco Silva, despite his struggles since signing for the Kopites. A £20m signing from Benfica, a loan spell with Fenerbahce last term yielded little in the way of success and his current club are believed to want rid of him already.
As you can well imagine, the Reds in the Tavern really want him out of Anfield too.
How disappointing has Markovic been? Let us know below…
