Russian source Isvestia claim that Zenit St Petersburg will launch a £12m bid for Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel.

The 28 year old spent four years at Zenit prior to his move to Anfield in January 2008 and this source believes he could be tempted back to the Russian Premier League side who can now offer Skrtel a huge salary in the hope of persuading the Slovakian to return to the Petrovsky Stadium.
A move to Zenit would perhaps offer Skrtel a more realistic hope of securing Champions League football though Brendan Rodgers would be loathed to lose arguably his most sound defensive option.
Jamie Carragher has performed admirably this term but is clearly in the latter stages of his career and Daniel Agger suffers with a fair few injuries whilst youngster Sebastian Coates has yet to prove himself in the English top tier.
Skrtel has racked up 202 appearances for Liverpool since his £8.5m move to Merseyside.
