Liverpool boss Rodgers turns to Benfica dynamo Markovic
Kop boss Brendan Rodgers is worried that Southampton are pricing attacking midfielder Lallana out of a move to Merseyside.
Markovic, 20, was Liverpool's original target for their left-wing slot at the end of the season, but the Lisbon club priced him at £30m then.
However, heavy hints are coming from the Portuguese giants that £25m could now be enough to secure a deal.
