      Lazar Markovic (Liverpool > Fulham)

      Officially signed confirmed on lfc.com

      Reds complete Markovic deal

      Liverpool FC are delighted to announce the signing of 20-year-old Serbia international Lazar Markovic from Portuguese side Benfica.

      The versatile attacker, who is capable of excelling in any forward position, joins the Reds on a long-term deal after a season of remarkable success with the Lisbon-based club.

      Markovic clocked up 49 appearances during the 2013-14 campaign and contributed seven goals as Benfica sealed a domestic treble and reached the Europa League final.

      Having quickly graduated through his country's youth ranks, the Cacak native made his international debut in February 2012 and is now a regular for his national team.

      He becomes Brendan Rodgers' fourth signing of the summer to date, following the confirmation of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Emre Can as new players for next season.

      After completing a medical and the formalities of his switch at Melwood, Markovic told Liverpoolfc.com: "I am very happy that I have joined such a great club.

      "I hope that I will fulfil the expectations of the supporters, coaches, players and all connected to the club. I have seen what the players are like, I have seen what the supporters are like, and I cannot wait to start playing here."

      Liverpool complete £20m signing of Lazar Markovic
      Liverpool have completed the £20m signing of Serbia international winger Lazar Markovic from Benfica.

      Markovic, 20, becomes the club's fourth signing this summer.

      A former Partizan Belgrade player, Markovic helped Benfica win the Portuguese title last season after joining the club in the summer of 2013.

      Liverpool have already signed Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton and Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen.

      He isn't much of a talker, is he?

      http://liverpoolfc.com/news/latest-news/166356-lazar-markovic-the-first-interview

      Pretty much all short responses. But he seems to be extremely focused and confident. I liked that part:

      Finally, what would your message to Liverpool fans be?

      I went to Partizan and won the title. I went to Benfica and won the title. Now I have joined Liverpool and want to win the title, 100 per cent.

      Our most exciting signing so far. Big upside and potential and already has some impressive attributes, pace, vision and passing (from the little I have seen on the vids anyway).

      Welcome to Liverpool, hope you are as good as people seem to think you are and you become the player people think you might.

      I think he might become the answer to our transition problems and hopefully get us a few goals too. Maybe too soon to say he is the new Steve McManaman... but we can hope.

      at what point do we insert a clause not allowing him to go to Real or Barca.
      Bit disappointed actually I thought Spurs would have made a late bid for him.
      Another young talented player it's looking good so far .
