Jurgen Klopp considering recalling forgotten winger in January

New Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is said to be weighing up the merits of bringing winger Lazar Markovic back from his loan spell with Fenerbahce in January, according to the Liverpool Echo.

It appears as though The Reds have the option to bring the Serbian international back early in the new year despite him only leaving during the summer.

The Echo reports that Klopp is a big admirer of the 21-year-old, and is deciding whether it would be more beneficial to bring him back to Anfield for the second half of the campaign where he would be able to work closely with him on his continued development.

Markovic moved to Fenerbahce back in August after a disappointing first season at Liverpool following his £20million move from Benfica.

Bagging just three goals in 23 appearances last term, Markovic has been accused of suffering with low confidence, which wasn’t helped by former boss Brendan Rodgers continually playing him out of position.

Fenerbahce are paying 100% of Markovic’s wages during his loan spell, but according to The Echo there is no option for the Turkish giants to sign him permanently at the end of the season.
