The Serbian starlet signed for the Reds from Benfica in 2014 in a deal worth around £20m.
Although he arrived with a stellar reputation after winning titles in Portugal and his homeland (where he represented Partizan Belgrade), Markovic’s debut campaign under Brendan Rodgers was a difficult one, with the now 21-year-old struggling to hold down a place in the starting XI.
Despite featuring heavily in pre-season, the Eastern European was shipped out to Fenerbahce on loan for 2016/17, and has impressed in Turkey.
The deal with the Istanbul side does not contain a clause allowing the club to sign him permanently for a set fee, and reports have already suggested that Klopp views him as a player he wants on Merseyside for his first full term in the dugout.
And now the German has further hinted a t a move to get Markovic back by claiming that he does not have enough wingers in his squad:
“We have enough strikers – five with Roberto (Firmino) – but not too many wingers, just a few young ones with great potential,” Klopp said.
“We have to decide early and at the right moment on transfers, but it is about a squad where you can play different systems and react to different situations
Markovic is able to play on either flank or as a ‘No.10’, but spent much of his only season at Liverpool so far being used in a right-sided wing-back role.
