The player has been left out of Liverpool’s 30-man squad for friendlies in Germany.

The Serbia international is surplus to requirements at Anfield, as he has spent the last two seasons on a loan at Fenerbahçe and Sporting Lisbon.

Recently, Klopp stated he did not see Lazar in Liverpool’s future plans:

“With Lazar, it’s no secret that if he finds a club then we will negotiate,” Klopp told the Liverpool Echo. “It was like this last year too.

“He’s a really good player. I like him as a person. He’s now fit and another one who is in the best shape since I’ve known him.

“Before he had problems with his groin but now he’s good. There will be a club out there who needs him.”

The player is now believed to be negotiating with Fiorentina. According to Press Association Sport, the 23-year-old is close to joining the Serie A side, but Liverpool are looking for a £16million bid to part ways with the player.

Watford are also believed to be interested in the Serbian, as British media indicated the club from Vicarage Road were keen to land the midfielder. However, Liverpool’ high demands when it comes to the price of Marković have completely put off Watford.
