Liverpool Tell Napoli To Meet Skrtel Valuations

Liverpool has said they will only sell defender Martin Skrtel to Napoli if they reach their valuations of £12million with a reunion between the Slovakian and Rafa Benitez becoming increasingly likely.

The Daily Mail report that Benitez is ready to step up the chase for his former Liverpool signing but is only considering a loan deal for the defender, similar to that of Pepe Reina who joined Napoli last month.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been linked with several defenders this summer and the Daily Mail believes Skrtel’s future may lie in the hands of Barcelona as they continue to show interest in Daniel Agger.

Liverpool signed Kolo Toure from Manchester City earlier this summer and Skrtel could be forced to compete for a place in the first eleven despite having been Liverpool’s dependable defender over the past few seasons.

His first team appearances slipped last season and he will be sure to get a lot of playing time if he joins back up with Benitez who signed him for Liverpool in 2008.
