Agent confirms Besiktas interest in Liverpool defender

Liverpool centre back Martin Skrtel’s agent Karol Csonto has confirmed Besiktas’ interest in the Slovakia international.

However Csonto went onto say that no agreement had been reached yet.

“Besiktas is one of those interested in Martin but we’re haven’t reached a point where I can confirm Martin is going there, or anywhere else,” Csonto told Slovakian TV station Markiza.

The powerful defender has made just 18 appearances following the arrival of manager Jurgen Klopp in October.

Skrtle seems to have fallen out of favour with Klopp as many of his appearances came when the German manager opted to rest first-team regulars during the club’s run to the Europa League final.

The Slovakia international joined Liverpool back in 2008 from Zenit and  Besiktas are interested in acquiring his signature this summer

The Black Eagles struggled defensively last season and despite winning the league they had the worst defensive record in the top-three.

Skrtel has now made 320 appearances for the Premier League giants.
