Markovic missed Liverpool's final preseason friendly against German side Borussia Dortmund, as he is dealing with a hamstring injury that has put him in doubt for the Reds' season opener.

Markovic has missed several of Liverpool's preseason matches and now looks in question for the season opener against Southampton. Expectations for the 20-year-old winger are sky high following a 20 million move to Merseyside from Benfica, but fantasy owners may have to wait to see how manager Brendan Rodgers deploys the youngster in a crowded, high octane, Liverpool midfield.

Markvoic will not play in the Guinness International Champions Cup final against Manchester United on Monday due to a minor tendon problem, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Markovic has already missed matches against Manchester City and AC Milan in the tournament, but the issue does not appear to be a long-term concern. Once the squad returns to England and trains at home, there should be a better idea of whether Markovic will be available for Liverpool's Premier League opener against Southampton.

Markovic officially signed a multi-year contract with Liverpool on Tuesday after transferring from Portuguese side Benfica, the club's official web site reports.

Markovic is another name on the list of additions thanks to the 75 million sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona. Markovic is only 20 years old, and he's got a bright future ahead of him, but it's tough to see him getting a starting role ahead of either Daniel Sturridge, Rickie Lambert or Raheem Sterling.

Markovic is expected to have a medical for Liverpool on Thursday ahead of a transfer to Anfield from Benfica, The Guardian reports.

Liverpool are expected to pay up to 20 million for Markovic as part of their rebuilding effort to replace the lost production of Luis Suarez, who is expected to be sold to Barcelona. Markovic scored 12 goals in 49 appearances in all competitions for Benfica last season, and he could be a mainstay at Liverpool as he's just 20 years old.
