Newcastle United have approached Lazar Markovic and the Serb is considering a move to the Championship to restart his career in England.

According to Goal, Markovic is prepared to take the step down to the Championship and join Newcastle in order to breathe some life into a stalling career. When Markovic joined

When Markovic joined Liverpool the former Sporting Lisbon player came with a lot of hype after winning a domestic treble with his Portuguese club. But, after being played out of position far too many times by Brendan Rodgers, affecting his development, and being made a scapegoat by the Northern Irishman, Markovic went on a season-long loan to Fenerbahce.

Much like Luis Alberto, who is close to completing a £4.3 million switch to Lazio, after a loan move abroad, Markovic will be packing his bags and saying his goodbyes very soon. His career on Merseyside has been very underwhelming, and yet it’s clear to see that he has the ability.

With Alberto and Markovic both close to being sold, Liverpool has almost cleared out all the deadwood in the squad – despite not buying the best players. Mario Balotelli still remains at the club, with his reputation for being a troublemaker making it difficult to sell him.
