Martin Skrtel: Heading for Fener

Martin Skrtel’s days at Liverpool could be numbered after the defender’s agent revealed his client is considering offers from clubs in Turkey.

Centre-back Skrtel has fallen out of favour in recent months under Jurgen Klopp, and has only been used recently when the German has rested players in order to prepare for the Europa League.

Liverpool signed the Slovakia international from Zenit St Petersburg in 2008, and the uncompromising defender established himself as a popular figure at Anfield.

However, according to the Sunday Telegraph, he has told friends he is resigned to leaving the club this summer, and his agent Mihat Halis has confirmed he has offers elsewhere.

“Skrtel is considering a move to Turkey and he is open to the option of playing here,” he said.

“Fenerbahce made an offer last season, Besiktas want Skrtel and make no secret of this. Turkish sides have been trying to sign him for five seasons but this summer he could make the move.”

Skrtel could be one of the most high-profile names to leave Anfield, with Klopp expected to conduct somewhat of a squad overhaul this summer.

Leicester’s teenage left-back Ben Chilwell has emerged as a main target, as Klopp attempts to solve the Reds’ problem position, while Bayern Munich’s World Cup-winning attacking midfielder Mario Gotze has also been tipped to reunite with his former manager.
