Football Transfer Centre

West Ham United will lodge an attempt to sign Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic when the transfer window reopens in three months' time.

The Serbia international is currently on a short-term loan at Hull City after falling out of favour under Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

Markovic has earned a regular run in the Hull City setup in recent weeks, and his showing has allegedly led to interest from several Premier League clubs.

According to The Sun, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has earmarked the attacker as one of his prime targets ahead of this summer's transfer window.

It is added that the East London outfit would be willing to match Liverpool's asking price which is currently in the range of £16m.

Markovic initially spent an unsuccessful loan spell with Sporting this term before he decided to test himself with the Tigers in the top flight.

He has earned eight appearances across all competitions for Hull City, who are still lingering in the Premier League drop zone.
