Chelsea have reportedly struck a deal for FK Partizan Belgrade sensation Lazar Markovic! The 18-year-old is reported to have pre-agreed a contract with the blues and he could join in the summer for a fee around £7million.
Who is Lazar Markovic?
Markovic is an 18-year-old Serbian forward who plays his trade with Partizan Belgrade! He’s already made 42 appearances netting 12 goals. Lazar has been introduced into Serbia’s national squad, he made his début in a 1-0 victory over Chile he scored the only goal. He’s revealed that CFC is his dream club and he has a big passion for English football!
He’s a very clever player and his positional play is very good. He’s composed in front of goal and he’s got a lot of potential. Many in Serbia regard him highly dubbing him as their next “Big Star”. I’m sure his arrival would be no problem at all if he were to join, and he’d certainly be looking for some help from Brana.
The Serbian is a very bright star and I think he has an illustrious career ahead of him! in a couple of years he will be a key player for Serbia and many top European clubs will be hot on his heels. I hope we can finalise the deal in the Summer and I hope he will have a big impact at SW6!
To be honest I love seeing the club promote youth and I hope the next manager has this philosophy. Unfortunately we don’t really have a reputation of promoting youth and many many bright prospects have never had the chance to shine at the blues!
Let me know what you think about Lazar Markovic. KTBFFH!
