£6.5m Liverpool star set for Anfield exit?

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is being linked with a summer Anfield exit.

The Slovakian centre back has been in-and-out of the side at Liverpool under Kenny Dalglish, and now Wolfsburg are reportedly keen to add the player to their ranks.

Bundesliga champions under Steve McLaren just two seasons ago, the German outfit have struggled since, but have money to spend after the sale of Edin Dzeko to Manchester City.

Skrtel has been targeted as a player who can bolster the club’s defence, according to the Star on Sunday, and the club are reportedly ready to test Liverpool with a bid in the region of £5 million.

A former Zent St Petersburg player, Skrtel move to Merseyside in 2008, with former Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez bringing the 26-year-old to the club for £6.5 million.

The left-sided centre half formed a solid relationship alongside Jamie Carragher during his first few seasons at Anfield, and has made over 100 appearances for the club in all competitions for Liverpool thus far.


It’s unknown if Liverpool legend Dalglish will consider letting the player leave for the reported price in the summer, with the club relatively short on cover in the position at the current time.

The additional transfer funds could go towards ‘King Kenny’ revamping the Liverpool backline as the Scot looks to put his own stamp on the team, and a sale would suggest that the manager is keen to make several key changes at the club.
