Napoli “can’t afford” Liverpool star – rumour rubbished

The agent of Martin Skrtel has rubbished speculation linking his client with a move away from Liverpool this summer.


Karol Csonto also says he doesn’t think Napoli, who have been linked with a move for Skrtel since Rafa Benitez was appointed their first team coach last month, could afford the Slovakian international defender.

Skrtel’s future on Merseyside has been up in the air after losing his first team place to Jamie Carragher during the 2012/13 season.

Csonto told Tuttomercatoweb, “Martin to move away from Liverpool? I specifically say that Skrtel has never said he wants to go away, then it depends on the Liverpool market because everything could change.

“It’s true that the last two seasons were difficult but in football it can happen.

“Napoli? I think they haven’t the financial possibilities to take him. Liverpool has not decided a price because they don’t intend to sell the player. Anyway, I don’t think that Napoli can afford his wage.”

Liverpool have been linked with several high-profile defenders this summer, including Schalke’s Kyriakos Papadopoulos.

In addition, Brendan Rodgers has agreed a deal to add Ivorian international defender Kolo Toure to his squad once the summer transfer window opens.
