Liverpool centre-back Martin Skrtel has admitted that is willing to leave the club this summer according to Sky Sports.

The Slovakian defender has previously been an integral part of the Liverpool team. But he is now considering his future at the club after finding himself dropped down the Anfield pecking order in the latter half of the season.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers preferred to play Jamie Carragher in the second half of the campaign, despite the now-retired defenders ageing years.

Skrtel may have been persuaded to stay now that Carragher has left the club but it is thought that he will be unlikely to find himself back in the first team next season following the arrival of Kolo Toure from Manchester City.

Wealthy Russian side Zenit St Petersburg are reportedly ready to offer Skrtel an escape route from Anfield and are preparing a £6 million bid.

That may well suit both player and club with Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers keen to raise some much needed funds in order to bring in new players.

Rodgers has been told he will have just £20 million to spend on new players this summer and so is keen to raise some additional funds as he looks to bring in three or four new players to Anfield in the coming months.
