Lazar Markovic eyes Premier League title with Liverpool

New Liverpool signing Lazar Markovic wants to help the club challenge on all fronts next season following his move from Benfica.

New Liverpool signing Lazar Markovic has set his sights on winning the Premier League title with the club next season.

The Serbian winger completed his move to Anfield earlier today, joining Brendan Rodgers's side from Benfica for a reported £20m fee.

The 20-year-old was part of the Benfica side that won a domestic treble and reached the Europa League final last season, and he is looking forward to challenging on all fronts once again having seen Liverpool narrowly miss out on the league title in May.

"The Premier League is the strongest league in the world, and so I am very happy to be here. And I have already played in the Champions League with Benfica. It is superb that Liverpool are in it and I hope we will go far next season," Markovic told the club's official website.

"I watched every [Liverpool] game [last season] and they played absolutely superb. It is a shame they did not win the title - but I hope we will win it this season.

"I went to Partizan and won the title. I went to Benfica and won the title. Now I have joined Liverpool and want to win the title, 100%."

Markovic is the fourth summer signing for Liverpool following the acquisitions of Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Emre Can.
