Standard Liege forward Milan Jovanovic claims he has agreed terms with Liverpool to join them in the summer.
The 28-year-old Serbia international's current deal with the Belgian club expires in the summer and he is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with any foreign side.

And Jovanovic now claims he has just to complete a medical at Liverpool before everything is concluded, saying in Belgian newspaper Sporza: "We have reached an agreement for three years, with the option to extend with another season. I opted to sign for Liverpool because they're one of the biggest teams around in Europe. They're definitely among the 10 biggest sides."
He added: "I have yet to undergo a medical exam, but that shouldn't be a problem.
"I don't have any physical problems and I'm feeling perfectly fit.
"I'm absolutely delighted that the deal is completed. From now on, I can focus on Standard Liege again. I want to leave the club in a good way."
Jovanovic was one of two free transfers manager Rafael Benitez was hoping to bring in this summer but the Reds boss admitted on Tuesday that Bordeaux's Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh would not be joining them.
