Liverpool 'make £25m Lazar Markovic move'

Liverpool are reportedly closing in on a £25m move for Benfica winger Lazar Markovic.

Liverpool will move for £25m-rated Benfica midfielder Lazar Markovic this summer, according to reports.

The Serbian international has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield, and The People now claims that a deal is more likely with his valuation dropping to an affordable price.

The player himself is also thought to be keen on a switch to Merseyside as the Reds look to build upon their second-placed finish in the Premier League last season.

Liverpool's hopes of securing Markovic's services are said to be boosted further should Benfica find a suitable replacement, with Manchester United winger Nani emerging as a key target for the Portuguese giants.

Nani may be able to move to Lisbon as new United manager Louis van Gaal is thought to have deemed the winger surplus to requirements.
