Marković Signs

Friday 1 February 2019 00:21

The Club is delighted to confirm the free transfer signing of 24-year-old winger Lazar Marković from Liverpool on a deal until the end of the season.

Fulham received very good recommendations from Aleksandar Mitrović regarding the player.

Marković made his breakthrough at Partizan Belgrade where he was a teammate of Mitrović and named in the SuperLiga team of the season in each of his two full – and title-winning – campaigns in the first team.

His form attracted the attentions of Benfica in the summer of 2013 but he was only with the Portuguese giants for one season, as his extraordinary success in their treble-winning campaign prompted Liverpool to part with a reported £20m for his services.

Marković made 34 appearances for the Reds in his maiden campaign with the club, before taking in four loan spells across four different countries at Fenerbahce, Sporting Lisbon, Hull City and Anderlecht.

Since making his Serbia debut in February 2012 Marković has scored three goals in 22 outings for his country.

Tony Khan said: “Lazar Marković is a gifted young player; we’re pleased to welcome him from Liverpool for the remainder of the season. Lazar is known as a great teammate, he has the support of our Manager, and he has the talent to strengthen our attack. Come on Fulham!”
