PHOTO: £20m Lazar Markovic trains with Liverpool in the US

New Liverpool signing Lazar Markovic is in training with the first team already.

New Liverpool signing Lazar Markovic was present as the club trained at Harvard University, USA, on Monday afternoon.

The Serbian playmaker clinched his £20 million move from Benfica last week, and his signing has been acclaimed by many pundits.

The timing of the transfer was also ideal, completed in time for him to join up with his teammates for pre-season.

This early chance to bed in and familiarise himself with the players should reap benefits for the Reds when competitive fixtures kick off.

The 20-year-old scored six goals last season, helping Benfica to winning the Primeira Liga and reaching the final of the Europa League.
