Liverpool have started pre-season training, as they prepare for the 2016-17 season.

The Merseyside outfit will be aiming to finish in the top four of the Premier League during the 2016-17 campaign and perhaps even push for the league title.

The Reds were training on Friday, and among the players who attended the session was Lazar Markovic.

Markovic has been on the books of Liverpool since the summer of 2014 when he joined from Portuguese giants Benfica.

The 22-year-old winger has struggled to establish himself at Anfield and spent the 2015-16 season on loan at Turkish giants Fenerbahce.
