Martin Skrtel is close to completing a move from Liverpool to Fenerbahce, according to the Turkish club’s president.
Fenerbahce have been in discussions with Liverpool over Skrtel’s transfer for a long time
Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim told AMK Spor: “The (Gregory) van der Wiel and Skrtel transfers are almost done.”
Liverpool signed Skrtel for £6.4m from Zenit Saint-Petersburg in January 2008 and the central defender has made 320 appearances for the club.
He signed a new three-year contract last summer but has fallen out of favour under manager Jurgen Klopp, starting just four games since the New Year, with Klopp opting to partner Kolo Toure with Dejan Lovren in the absence of Mamadou Sakho.
