Lazar Markovic: Keen on Benfica switch

Chelsea have long been leading the chase for the brilliant young Serbian, who is reported to have revealed after the weekend derby with Red Star that he would be leaving this summer.

However, Benfica have now emerged as contenders for the 19-year-old's signature and he admits that he would be tempted by a switch to the Estadio da Luz.

"Benfica is a great club, one of the biggest in the world," he told Abola.

"I truly believe that it would be good for me to play for them."

Benfica have already agreed deals for two more Serbs in the shape of Miralem Sulejmani and Filip Djuricic.

Meanwhile, another player who could be heading to Benfica is Bayer Leverkusen's German youth international Christoph Kramer - who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Bochum.

Kramer's agent Gerd vom Bruch told Express: "Christoph Kramer has gone through two great years at Bochum. He deserves to have caught the eyes of clubs able to offer him a great future.

"He has some interesting enquiries. The enquiry from Benfica is the most concrete one, this club is extremely interested in him."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
