Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is expected to arrive in Istanbul next week to put pen-to-paper on his move to Fenerbahce.
The daily Turkish sports paper Fanatik states that the Slovakian international is set to join Fenerbahce and will begin pre-season training with his new club next week.
Skrtel’s his agent Karol Csonto confirmed to Turkish-football.com that Fenerbace are in advanced talks with Liverpool.
“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 Slovakian international joined Liverpool from Russian giants Zenit for £7.5 million in 2007 and went onto make 320 appearances for the Reds.
