Besiktas to make offer for Liverpool defender says agent despite reports of £5.5m deal

Besiktas are expected to make an offer for Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel according to his agent Karel Csonto.

The agent revealed that he expects the Turkish Super Lig champions as well as Galatasaray to make an offer.

“There are three clubs who really want him, and we expect Galatasaray and Besiktas to make a good offer too,” Csonto told Goal.

Skrtel will make a decision regarding his future after the European Championships but he is almost certain to leave Liverpool this summer.

“Skrtel will then consider what is the best option for him when he is done at the European Championships,” he added.

The Slovakian international was expected to join Fenerbahce after the Guardian reported that a £5.5 million deal had been agreed between the Yellow Canaries and Liverpool.

It now seems that a deal is not yet in place and that Skrtel is also open to other offers. Italian sides Roma and Inter have also been linked with the experienced defender.

Skrtel has started in both Euro 2016 games for Slovakia and is likely to feature against England in his countries final group game.

The experienced defender joined the Reds for £6.5 million from Zenit Saint-Petersburg in 2008 and has made 320 appearances for the Premier League outfit.
