Man City team news Aguero

Fenerbahce are in advanced talks with Liverpool regarding the transfer of Martin Skrtel his agent Karol Csonto told

Negotiations between the clubs have been ongoing for the past few weeks and while a deal has yet to be reached he did hint that the signs are promising.

“Talks have been ongoing between Liverpool and Fenerbahce for the last two-three weeks and there are just a few details to sort out,” Csonto said.

“All I can say is that it looks promising.”

Fenerbahce have made strengthening their defence a priority over the summer as Ba’s loan deal runs out and Bruno Alves has also left.

Skrtel would join Denmark international Simon Kjaer at centre-back if he does go ahead and make the move.

The Guardian recently reported that Fenerbahce are on the verge of signing Skrtel for a £5.5 million fee.

The 31-year-old received widespread praise for his display at Euro 2016 this summer playing a key role in Slovakia reaching the Last 16 stage before being eliminated following a 3-0 defeat against Germany.

Skrtel joined Liverpool from Russian giants Zenit for £7.5 million in 2007 and went onto make 320 appearances for the Reds.
