Klopp reportedly wants Liverpool return for winger Lazar Markovic; ideal move?

Jurgen Klopp reportedly wants to bring Lazar Markovic

According to The Mirror, Jurgen Klopp is considering a move to bring winger Lazar Markovic back to Liverpool from his loan spell at Fenerbahce.

The German boss is assessing his squad having replaced Brendan Rodgers in the Anfield dugout just over a week ago, and Saturday's 0-0 draw against Tottenham was a solid start to life in the Premier League for the former Borussia Dortmund boss.

The relentless high-pressing was evident against Spurs, but it's fair to say that Klopp does lack a real, natural winger for his starting XI now, with James Milner preferring a central role and Adam Lallana drifting inside.

As a result, The Mirror believe that Klopp is keen to bring Lazar Markovic back to Anfield, with the Serbian wide man currently out on loan at Turkish side Fenerbahce.

The 21-year-old was a big-money signing by previous boss Rodgers having impressed with Benfica, but was in-and-out of the side last season, and was subsequently sent off to Fenerbahce for first-team experience.

Yet with Klopp at the helm, Markovic could return to Liverpool in January, with Klopp doing all he can to assess the players at his disposal.

Klopp's Dortmund side thrived with Jakub Blaszczykowski out on the right hand side, and Markovic's pace could give him a similar effect, making an Anfield return potentially ideal for Klopp and the player himself, who could have a much bigger role under the new Reds boss.
