Chelsea to trigger Lazar Markovic option to leave Liverpool trailing

Chelsea are ready to deal in Benfica winger Lazar Markovic. The Daily Express says Chelsea are also considering activating their agreement over Markovic this summer as they look to rebuild their attack.

Chelsea have an agreement in place to buy Benfica's 50 per cent share of Markovic for £7.5m, so a deal of about £15m would bring one of the most highly rated young forwards in Europe to Stamford Bridge.

Markovic, who joined Benfica from Partizan Belgrade last summer, has scored seven goals for Benfica this season, often playing in a wide role, but Liverpool are also keen on the Serbian international.
