When the signing of Lazar Markovic was announced by Fulham on January transfer deadline day, many Liverpool supporters would have been forgiven for forgetting the winger was still on the club's books.
With Lazar Markovic having played a grand total of 45 minutes so far at Fulham, Liverpool's decision to offload the Serbian looks to have been of good judgment.
Fulham billed the signing as a free transfer that was low-risk and played up the close friendship between star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and Markovic.
Ever since Markovic joined the Whites, Mitrovic has failed to score a single goal, Fulham have failed to win or draw a single game, and Markovic has only made one substitute appearance.
After Scott Parker joined the club, the winger has been banished out of the 18-man squad and appears unlikely to play any further part in the season.
In all, Fulham's relegation is all but assured and Markovic will definitely go down as one of the most underwhelming signings in recent time for the club.
Lazar Markovic’s wholly anonymous tenure at the doomed London club will have Liverpool feeling confident in their decision to let him leave on a free.
