According to the Daily Express, Fiorentina are interested in taking Lazar Markovic off Liverpool’s hands in a cut-price deal in January.
The Serie A club provides Markovic with the perfect escape from his Liverpool nightmare, where the winger hasn’t played a match for the Reds since 2015.
The Serbian made his Liverpool debut in 2014, playing 34 times in the 2014/15 campaign for the Reds.
After appearances in the Premier League, League Cup, FA Cup, and Champions League produced just three goals and one assist, Markovic began his long, winding loan journey.
Spells at Fenerbahce, Sporting Lisbon, Hull City, and Anderlecht followed, all with Markovic failing to make a significant attacking impact.
With no future back at Anfield due to the Reds’ current fearsome attack, a permanent move to Fiorentina would offer Markovic a clean slate to kickstart his footballing career.
Still only 24 years of age, the Serbian has plenty of time to rediscover his top form, and a break from his current negative pattern of short-term loan spells is the ideal way to do that.
More than four years after completing his switch to Anfield, Lazar Markovic must seek a Fiorentina move to put an end to his Liverpool loan cycle.
