Fenerbahce are in advanced negotiations with Liverpool regarding the transfer of Martin Skrtel a source close to the Yellow Canaries told Turkish-football.com.
Skrtel will leave Liverpool over the summer and Fenerbahce are currently closest to signing the Slovakian international.
The experienced midfielders Karol Cstono revealed that the two clubs have been in talks for the past few weeks and that there are just a few details left to sort out before the transfer is finalised.
“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 already parted ways with defenders Ba and Bruno Alves this summer making strengthening the defence a priority.
The Yellow Canaries signed Schalke 04 defender Roman Neustadter today and PSG’s Gregory van der Wiel recently.
Skrtel would be Fenerbahce’s final defensive signing of the season and would join Denmark international Simon Kjaer at centre-back if the deal goes ahead.
The 31-year-old defender joined the Reds from Russian giants Zenit for £7.5 million in 2007 and went onto make 320 appearances for the Reds.
