Martin Skrtel is a Transfer Target for Every Club in Europe

Having supposedly agreed terms with Roma only a few days ago, now another Italian club is supposedly in the mix for Liverpool centre half Martin Skrtel. Not a day goes by it seems without Martin Skrtel being linked to another club in Europe. There’s the Turkish trio of Fenerbahce, Besiktas, and Galatasaray. There’s Wolfsburg in Germany. There’s the unnamed CSL club that’s supposedly prepared to throw money at him. There’s Roma, who he had supposedly agreed terms with. And, today, in case all those options and supposedly done or nearly done deals weren’t enough to sort through,...

Martin Skrtel Not Above Kicking Daniel Sturridge, Rates Roy Hodgson, and Hates Nice Things

Worst. Interview. Of. All. Time. (Maybe.) If #topbantz between teammates is totally your thing, Group B at Euro is definitely where it's at. Between England, Wales, and Slovakia, Liverpool have more than a handful of players ready to talk about facing one another. As captain of Slovakia, Martin Škrtel has been getting more time at the microphone than normal, and he's got some super competitive feelings about facing Daniel Sturridge on Monday. "It's not a normal situation but we're professionals and this is part of the job," Skrtel said. "I know them and they know me, though there's more...

Skrtel: All the Pressure is on England in Group B Finale

Head games should start early and often, and Slovakia captain Martin Skrtel is sending out some early warnings ahead of Euro Group B's final matches. The group stage of the Euros is beginning to wind down, with Group B set to play their final matches on Monday night to determine who advances, who goes home, and who might hold on to play at least one more match based on how the other third place finishes play out. Slovakia will find themselves pitted against England, but captain Martin Skrtel isn't overly worried about Roy Hodgson's brave lads. "England is still one of the best teams in the...

Reports: Martin Skrtel Signs 3 Year Agreement with Roma

The latest news in the Skrtel saga is that the defender is set to complete a deal that would see him head to Roma on a three year deal. Last week, it seemed that Liverpool center-back Martin Skrtel was on his way to Fenerbahce. Today, Italian journalists are instead insisting that the Liverpool defender is set to sign a three year deal with Serie A side AS Roma. Emanuele Giulianelli, a journalist who writes for Italy's Gazzetta dello Sport, among others, broke the news on Twitter this morning. Roma have reached an agreement for Skrtel. 3 years contract for the Slovak former Liverpool...

Martin Skrtel Hesitant to Complete Fenerbahce Move

Liverpool have accepted a £5.5M bid for Martin Skrtel from Fenerbahce, but the player isn’t ready to sign a deal with them just yet. Despite the fact that Liverpool have accepted a £5.5M offer from Fenerbahce for Martin Skrtel, the Liverpool and Slovakia defender is yet to decide if he will make the move to the Turkish club. According to his agent, he’s still expecting other clubs to step forward with offers and won’t decide until he has a few options. “There are three clubs who really want him,” said agent Karol Csonto, referring to recent reports of interest from Wolfsburg and...

Report: Martin Skrtel on Verge of £5.5million Move to Fenerbahçe

Well that escalated quickly. Liverpool softie Martin Skrtel has been linked with a move away from Anfield for several seasons, but always managed to find himself in the team sheet come September when the transfer window closed. It doesn't look like that will be the case this season, with reports emerging late on Wednesday that the Slovakian defender is moving on for real this time. Hot on the heels of his loose-lipped agent citing destinations in Germany, Turkey, and even China as potential moves for his client, Skrtel is apparently set to make the move to Fenerbahçe. Though Skrtel is...

Liverpool FC Transfer News: Skrtel’s Agent Claims “Three Clubs Want Martin”

Martin Skrtel is likely to leave Liverpool this summer, and according to a representative from his agency, there are three clubs he could end up at. Earlier today, reports in Turkey claimed Fenerbahce were closing on a deal for Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel. Now, an agent working for the group that represents the 31-year-old centre half has come out with confirmation of that report, but with a twist. According to Mathat Halis, Fenerbahce have been interested in Skrtel for four years now and could land the centre half this summer, but there are two other clubs that could also sign him....

Fenerbahce Reportedly Closing on Martin Skrtel Deal

Liverpool Receive £7 Million Transfer Offer For Martin Skrtel

Besiktas are looking to bring in the experienced defender. When Dejan Lovren became a feasible defensive partner for Mamadou Sakho in the second half of this past season, another center back dropped further down the pecking order with manager Jürgen Klopp. Martin Skrtel, a longtime servant for Liverpool in the central defense, battled a hamstring injury and struggled to find playing time down the stretch. And when started -- as he did in a late season meltdown against Swansea City -- he wasn't very good. With Lovren, Sakho and Joel Matip all clearly slotted ahead of him entering next...
