Liverpool is on the verge of making yet another move for their defense, as they are expected to dole out a three-year contract to defender Martin Skrtel.
According to SportsMole, the Reds will seal the deal for Skrtel next week, with the player extending his stay at Anfield until 2018.
This will be a big boost for the club in defence, with signings like Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho unconvincing last season, and with the Sloavkian international previously turning down a deal from the Merseyside giants.
He had previously been angry with the team for their initial offer, calling it “unacceptable,” according to The Guardian.
Liverpool had originally offered the 30-year-old defender a contract that was based on performance-based incentives.
Skrtel did not have his best performance in the 2014-15 season though, as the Reds experienced defensive woes as he was held to one goal.
He has proven to be capable of scoring in the past though, as he notched seven goals in the 2013-14 season.
He also provides crucial experience, having been with Liverpool since 2008. This will be invaluable to a squad that has just bid farewell to long-serving captain Steven Gerrard.
