Anderlecht keen to sign Lazar Markovic following loan spell

  Anderlecht keen to sign Lazar Markovic following loan spell Anderlecht are reportedly interested in making Lazar Markovic’s loan deal at the club a permanent move this summer. According to Belgian journalist Pieter-Jan Calcoen, Anderlecht do not have the option to sign Markovic as part of the loan deal but will attempt to prise him away from Liverpool anyway. Markovic joined the Brussels based club in January of this year but has only made six appearances, scoring once in a 2-1 defeat at Genk.

The winger made 34 appearances in his first season at Anfield, but has since struggled to get a look in at the club. Anderlecht are Markovic’s fourth loan club since he’s beeon on the books of the Reds, having previously spent time with Fenerbache, Sporting Lisbon and Hull City. It seems clear the 24-year-old doesn’t have a future under Jurgen Klopp and will be keen to move on this summer for the good of his career.

According to reports from Belgian outlet DH (h/t The Chronicle, live blog: 9:40 am), Belgian club Anderlecht are looking to complete the signing of Matz Sels from Newcastle United on a permanent basis in the summer transfer window.

With Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez on the lookout for new shot-stoppers in the summer, and with a deal in place to sign Martin Dubravka permanently, it appears there is no room for Sels at St James’ Park. Fortunately, the 26-year-old has done more than enough at Anderlecht to convince the reigning

Newcastle United goalkeeper Matz Sels is on the verge of joining Belgium club Anderlecht on a permanent deal but there are problems between the two club’s negotiations.

According to Het Laatste Nieuws, The Magpies have set a price tag of €4m, which Anderlecht believe to be too much with the price tag now becoming a problem between the two sides.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper joined Newcastle in 2016 for £6.5 million from Gent but has since failed to make himself a regular in the starting 11.

Sels spent the 2017/18 season on loan at Anderlecht, impressing during his 36 appearances for the Belgian side.

Anderlecht believe Newcastle are being ‘stiff’ as they try to haggle the price down, but Newcastle are determined to recoup as much of the £6.5million that Sels cost them as possible.

Reports say that Sels is prepared to take a pay cut to join the Belgian club and wants to sign a five-year deal.

Newcastle United are interested in signing defender Craig Dawson and striker Fernando Torres as they look to build their squad ahead of next season, according to Chronicle Live. West Brom have been relegated to the Championship which has opened the door for Newcastle to make a move for Dawson, but it’s thought it will take £15 million to land the player. Although his side have largely struggled this season, Dawson has impressed, making 31 appearances scoring two goals in that time. Dawson has two years left to run on his current deal and doesn’t have a release clause in his deal, which means that it may prove tough to get this one over the line. There could also be a move for Spanish striker Fernando Torres with current boss Rafa Benitez open to a move with his former player. Newcastle have confirmed their Premier League status for next season and it’s thought the player is keen on a move back to the Premier League.
