Lazar Markovic will be allowed to leave Liverpool if a suitable offer is received.
Manager Jurgen Klopp told the Liverpool Echo: “With Lazar Markovic, it’s no secret that if he finds a club then we will negotiate. It was like this last year too.
“He’s a really good player. I like him as a person. He’s now fit and another one who is in the best shape since I’ve known him. Before he had problems with his groin but now he’s good. There will be a club out there who needs him.”
hough he featured in Liverpool’s opening pre-season friendly away to Tranmere Rovers earlier this month, the writing was on the wall for Markovic when he was left out against Wigan Athletic.
The winger then remained at Melwood while Klopp’s squad flew out to Hong Kong for clashes with Crystal Palace and Leicester City, training alongside the likes of Mamadou Sakho and Sadio Mane.
Having impressed while on loan with Hull City last season, Markovic is unlikely to struggle to find a new club this summer.
Watford are reportedly hopeful of securing a deal, with Marco Silva his manager at the KC Stadium last season, while Besiktas are said to be interested in a loan.
Liverpool had valued Markovic at £20 million this summer, but have since lowered their asking price to just £12 million.
