The English football club Liverpool has completed the $40 million signing of Serbian winger Lazar Markovic from Benfica on a "long-term deal".

The 20-year-old helped Benfica win the Portuguese title last season after joining the club from Partizan Belgrade in 2013.

The Serbia international becomes the club's fourth signing this summer.

Liverpool have already signed striker Rickie Lambert and midfielder Adam Lallana from Southampton, and Germany under-21 midfielder Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen.
