Liverpool boss Rodgers turns to Benfica dynamo Markovic

Liverpool are throwing their energies into prising Lazar Markovic away from Benfica.

The Mirror says Liverpool are ready to drop their bid to sign Southampton star Adam Lallana - and set their sights on 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.
