Martin Skrtel set for Liverpool exit as Besiktas line up summer swoop for Slovakia defender

Odion Ighalo in action with Martin Skrtel 
Martin Skrtel's agent claims it is "90%" certain that the axed defender will quit Liverpool this summer.
Skrtel, 31, wants to leave because he has lost his starting place under Jurgen Klopp and his representative Karol Csonto says Besiktas are interested in the Slovakian international.
Csonto told TV Markiz in Slovakia: "Besiktas is one of those interested in Martin, but we haven't reached a point where I can confirm Martin is going there, or anywhere else.
"But I can say that it is 90% sure Martin will leave Liverpool, but it is far from closed."
Skrtel has struggled with injuries this season and his chances have been limited following his return to fitness.

The Slovakian has made just 29 appearances and since returning to fitness has found himself behind the likes of Dejan Lovren and Kolo Toure in Jurgen Klopp's pecking order.
The summer arrival of Joel Matip will accelerate Skrtel's exit after nine years at Anfield with the popular centre-half seemingly heading to Turkey with Besiktas.
