Lazar Markovic completed his move from Benfica to Liverpool earlier today…
Liverpool have completed the signing of Benfica’s 20-year-old midfielder Lazar Markovic, and the Anfield faithful will be full of excitement as they wait to see their new man in action for the first time.
For those that can’t wait, check out this video of the very best of Markovic from his time with Benfica.
Having arrived at the Portuguese giants last summer from Partizan Belgrade, he immediately impressed in both his domestic league and in Europe.
In total, he made 26 starts, 13 appearances from the bench, and notched six goals. Most comfortable on the right of an attacking front three, Markovic is equally adept on the opposite flank or in the hole behind the striker.
Markovic prides himself on his acceleration, and his technical ability with the ball at his feet. Not only can he dribble past opponents, but he has the vision and creative spark to thread intricate through-balls to onrushing teammates.
