Liverpool have been a busy club in the transfer window having bought in a number of new players into the squad.
They look a stronger outfit from the previous season and though they still have work to do on their squad, they are certainly looking a formidable outfit going into the next season.
The manager is still looking for a left-back and a defensive midfielder but with just a week left for the start of the new season, the manager will now be busy in letting fringe players go before the start of the season.
One such player who has been constantly linked with a move away from the club is Serbian international Lazar Markovic.
Recent reports have suggested that the winger is now subject to a loan move to Italian side Lazio in the upcoming season.
Markovic moved to Liverpool a couple of years ago on a £20m deal but has not been able to assert himself at Anfield. He was played out of position under Brendan Rodgers and was then loaned out to Fenerbahce in the previous season where he picked up an injury and was not able to prove himself.
He was given enough chances in the pre-season under Jurgen Klopp who seems to have not been impressed by the winger and it is now understood that Liverpool are ready to cash in on him this summer.
The likes of Fiorentina and AS Roma were linked with a permanent switch for the player but it is now reported the Lazio have made an official enquiry into his availability on loan this summer.
Lazio are set to lose star winger Keita Balde to a top club this summer and are hoping to sign Markovic as a potential replacement for their star player.
It is revealed that Lazio wants Markovic as a replacement for the 21-year old and are ready to make a loan move this summer with an option to make it permanent if the player is impressive.
Liverpool, however, are looking to offload the player permanently and have been linked with a move for Ajax’ Anwar El Ghazi as a replacement for Markovic in the squad.
It will be interesting to see if Klopp is ready to let go of the Serbian on a loan deal this summer.
