Lazar Markovic looking forward to Steven Gerrard partnership

Lazar Markovic reveals that he is eager to team with Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard next season.

New Liverpool signing Lazar Markovic has revealed that he is looking forward to playing alongside captain Steven Gerrard next season.

The Serbian youngster was unveiled on Tuesday after completing his £20m move from Benfica, and the winger is excited about the prospect of teaming with the Reds skipper.

He told the club's official website: "I could not favour any one of [the squad]. They are all equally good, but maybe the captain, Gerrard, as he is the team's leader.

"I am very happy that I have joined such a great club. I hope that I will fulfil the expectations of the supporters, coaches, players and all connected to the club."

The Reds have splashed out around £60m already this summer following the arrivals of Markovic, Emre Can, Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.
