Turkish Premier League club Galatasaray are set to offer Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel £100,000 a week to lure him away from Anfield, according to reports from the Mirror.

Gala would still have to agree with Liverpool for the player if they are to convince him of their intentions with huge financial rewards, but the Reds may be willing to let him go if Brendan Rodgers is planning to rebuild his defence this summer.

It was the goals conceded column that cost the club in the Premier League last season, meaning that Rodgers may be convinced to sanction a deal for Skrtel if he is able to secure a superior replacement.

The 29 year-old Slovakian international has given Liverpool five excellent years of service since signing from Zenit St. Petersburg in 2008, but the feeling from some on Merseyside is that it may be the correct time to go their separate ways.

The Turkish club have begun to make more of a concerted effort to move for big names stars from major European leagues in recent years, with both Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder having been convinced to ply their trade at the Istanbul club recently.

Skrtel would be joining new Gala manager Cesare Prandelli, who was handed the role just days after he resigned from his job of manager of Italy following their failure to qualify for the last sixteen of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
