PL attacker who cost £22.5m is next most likely Aston Villa signing in January – report
Liverpool’s attacker Lazar Markovic is the next most likely signing for Aston Villa, according to Football Whispers.
The site, affiliated to Sky Sports, rates all the most likely global transfers and rates them out of five.
Five means a certain move and currently Markovic is in the top 10 most likely global transfers to happen next in January.
The move is currently ninth in their top ten, just below Edin Dzeko to Chelsea.
Markovic, despite showing lots of promise, has struggled at Liverpool since his £22.5m move from Benfica in the summer of 2014.
The winger has been sent out on loan moves to Fenerbach, Sporting CP and Hull City.
The 23-year-old returned from Hull in the summer but hasn’t made an impression on Klopp’s first team.
He made 14 appearances at Hull and scored two goals, after 34 appearances for Liverpool that saw him register just three goals.
It’s very likely that if he were to move it would be another temporary exit.
In other Aston Villa news, Villa have rejected multiple bids for this £500,000-a-game player.
