The Slovakia international has been linked with a reunion with the man who brought him to Anfield at San Paolo, and his agent admits his client will consider any offers
Martin Skrtel’s agent has revealed he will hold talks with Liverpool next week to decide his future as speculation mounts over a possible move to Napoli.
Skrtel struggled to find his best form under Brendan Rodgers last season, with retiring veteran Jamie Carragher preferred alongside Daniel Agger in the second half of the campaign.
Rafa Benitez’s appointment at Napoli has sparked reports of a reunion with the man who brought him to Anfield, and Skrtel’s agent admits his client would consider any offer from the Italians.
“There has been no contact between the two clubs. Martin has a contract with Liverpool and it is important to honour that,” Karol Csonto told Italian station Radio Crc.
“Obviously Napoli know Martin well, but there cannot be any contact between us and them if they do not first reach an agreement with Liverpool.
“Between Martin Skrtel and Rafa Benitez is a professional relationship that has gone on from the years they spent together at Liverpool.
“[Napoli midfielder] Marek Hamsik and Skrtel are very good friends and they met last week. The midfielder requested information from Martin about Benitez, while Skrtel has asked questions about Napoli.
“But I think that if Napoli want to take Skrtel, they should first talk to Liverpool. I will be in England next week to talk with Liverpool and define Martin’s future.”
