Slovakia international originally joined Reds from St Petersburg.
Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg are considering making a move to re-sign former defender Martin Skrtel from Premier League giants Liverpool, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
fanatix tickets – Aston Villa vs Liverpool tickets are on sale from £30 for the match on March 31st at Villa Park.
The Slovakia international only arrived at Anfield from the Russians in the January transfer window of 2008, and has made himself a huge fans’ favourite at Anfield in the intervening five-year period.
The centre back has been a regular at the heart of the Merseysiders’ back four, either playing alongside veteran Jamie Carragher or Denmark international Daniel Agger.
However, there have been rumours of late linking Skrtel with a possible move away from the Reds, with Premier League champions Manchester City reportedly interested in bringing the player to the Ethiad stadium last summer in a big-money move.
That never materialised, with the defender subsequently agreeing a new contract with Liverpool, although with the Russian transfer window remaining open until Feb 24, Zenit could still launch a late raid to bring Skrtel back to St Petersburg, with a possible fee of £13 million being mentioned.
