Liverpool’s Slovakian international Martin Skrtel will be offered the chance to leave Anfield and join Bundesliga’s second placed side Wolfsburg this summer, according to The Mirror.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers sees Skrtel’s contract situation as a top priority, along with both Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson, as he enters his final year.
Talks are not set to take place for an extension until the summer and Wolfsburg are set to pounce beforehand and offer him a move to the Bundesliga and the opportunity to play guaranteed Champions League football.
The defender has been at Anfield for seven years, having joined from Zenit in 2008, but contract discussions have been put on old for the time being, with Napoli also sniffing around.
The Reds seem to have already started shopping for a replacement, according to the paper, with Swansea’s Ashley Williams touted with a move to the red half of Merseyside.
West Ham are also looking at Liverpool full back Glen Johnson should they fail to keep hold of Arsenal loanee Carl Jenkinson.
