Lazar Markovic is only focussed on his Turkish loan spell, and not a potential permanent move away from our club in the summer, reports Goal.
Despite costing a massive £20m in 2014, Liverpool sent the young Serb on loan to Fenerbahce – where he’s really starting to find his feet.
“It’s in Liverpool’s hands,” Markovic began. “But I’m trying to give my all on the pitch as a player for Fenerbahce. Every day in training this is true for me. I came here to be champions. At the end of the season we will see what happens all together.”
Injuries affected the 21-year-old at the start of the loan spell, but he’s now worked his way into the side and has racked up a few assists in recent weeks, bagging a goal versus Celtic in the League Cup for good measure before Christmas.
He’s been playing on the right wing for Fenerbahce, which was the position in which he made his name for Benfica.
Under Brendan Rodgers he didn’t get a fair crack of the whip in truth, but had left the club before new boss Jurgen Klopp got a chance to check him out.
Klopp will likely make running the rule over Markovic a summer priority, and it’s a shame the terms of his loan deal mean we cannot recall him this January.
