Skrtel has fallen out of favour at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp and is widely expected to leave this summer.

The agent of Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has suggested to FC Inter News that Italian giants Inter Milan are amongst the clubs interested in securing his signature this summer.

Skrtel fell out of favour at Anfield under Jurgen Klopp this season due to a combination of injury and the improved form of fellow defenders such as Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho.

The 31-year-old managed just 22 Premier League appearances and despite signing a new deal 11 months ago he appears certain to leave the Merseyside club this summer after eight-and-a-half years.

However, the centre-back has impressed for Slovakia so far at Euro 2016, captaining his side to a third-placed finish thanks to a 2-0 victory over Russia and a goalless draw with England on Monday.

Whilst his time at Liverpool appears to be up, Skrtel has shown that he certainly still has much to offer any clubs who come in for him this summer, and sides such as Fenerbahce and AS Roma have already been linked with a move.

According to his agent, Karol Csonto, Roma are not the only Italian club sniffing around Skrtel, with the player's representative claiming that Inter Milan are one of a number of interested parties.

Csonto told FC Inter News: "Soon we will know something more, I think in a few days. There are several teams interested, including Inter, which is certainly a distinct possibility.

"Martin, he is a great player. [Inter manager Roberto] Mancini? Let's talk about a great coach, but as I said there is to wait. Not much yet, but one has to wait."

Most Liverpool fans are unlikely to mourn the exit of Skrtel if and when he does ultimately leave Melwood, but the club will undoubtedly be losing a fine servant to their cause.

The Slovakian captain has been a key figure for the Reds for the majority of his time in England and has racked up 319 appearances for the club in all competitions.
