​Liverpool's forgotten man Lazar Markovic has been made available for a move away from Anfield this summer.


As reported in ​The Mirror, Markovic, still only twenty-three, has been made available for only £12m, with the Reds seemingly ready to take an £8m hit on a player for whom they forked out £20m only three years ago.

The Serbia international has spent the entirity of the past two seasons out on loan, at Fenerbahce, Sporting CP and most recently Hull in the Premier League.


Indeed, whilst playing at the KCOM stadium he was hugely influential in a tigers team that nearly pulled off a miraculous escape having been seemingly doomed at Christmas, following the arrival of Marco Silva and the plethora of loanees that followed.

And with Silva now having taken the reins at Watford, it seems that he is keen on discussing a similar deal. However, Liverpool have made it clear that they want to remove the player from their books on a more permanent basis.


The Vicarage road club can expect competition from Russian giants Zenit Saint Petersburg for Markovic' signature, while Turkish stalwarts Galatasaray have also declared an interest in the winger, who's career at Anfield is seemingly coming to an end with only eleven starts and two goals to his name.

Silva has already been active in the transfer market, securing the signing of Derby County creative midfielder Will Hughes in recent days for £7m.


Watford have also made overtures for Sporting Lisbon goalkeeper Rui Patricio and Juventus utility man Mario Lemina. Silva is also confident of sealing a reunion with winger Kamil Grosicki , who he signed for Hull alongside Markovic following his arrival in January.
