Liverpool's transfer dealing last summer left a lot to be admired as a number of big money additions failed to produce at the club.

Mario Balotelli has paid the price for his lacklustre performances last season for the Anfield club, joining AC Milan on a season long loan.

It appears Lazar Markovic could be following the Italian out of Anfield with Sky Sports reporting the Serbian is in talks over a loan move to Turkish side Fenerbahce.

The major difference between Balotelli and Markovic would be that the 21-year-old still appears to have a future on Merseyside and could force his way back into contention after a loan spell.

Liverpool forked out a fee of £20 million to bring Markovic to the Premier League from Benfica, but the wide man failed to live up to his price tag, scoring three goals in 31 appearances.

The midfielder is yet to make an appearance this season for Liverpool as Brendan Rodgers' men have made a strong start to the season, picking up seven points in three matches and it appears a loan move would be beneficial for the youngsters development.

Jordon Ibe has usurped Markovic in the pecking order and has been involved in every game this season, while Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana are also ahead of the Serbian.

At such a young age time is on his side to make his Anfield career a success. The chance to play regular football in a competitive league, along with the Europa League, would be a good learning curve for the Serbian international.

Markovic could link up with former Manchester United stars Robin van Persie and Nani, who moved to the Turkish outfit this summer.

Liverpool fans, can Lazar Markovic turn around his fortunes at Anfield? Is a loan deal a good move? Have your say below!
