Martin Skrtel and a potential move to Rangers appears to be a story that continues to be told in sections of the Turkish press.
Whether the link between Steven Gerrard and the former Slovakia international’s time at Liverpool is the main reason is debatable, however, the speculation about a switch to Ibrox is one that continues to be pushed around.
What’s the News?
According to Milliyet, Rangers remain very keen in the central defender and are watching his current situation very closely.
Skrtel is set to leave Fenerbache in the summer as his current contract expires next month and progression on a new deal is thought to have been stumbling along, leaving his future in the air.
However, the Light Blues are not the only side thought to be interested in securing the experienced enforcer’s signature though, with Olympiakos and Parma all thought to be keen on him.
Another transfer window is almost upon us, however, Rangers fans will not be surprised that Skrtel is being continually linked with a move to Ibrox once again.
The 34-year-old was heavily-linked with a switch to join Gerrard at the Light Blues last summer, with various reports circulating the rumour and the Scottish Sun even claiming back in May 2018 that a deal had almost been completed, however, that obviously failed to materialise.
Rangers managed to bolster their defensive ranks in the summer, however, it seems that the club could be prepared to do so again this year and the experienced head is one name that just simply will not go away.
Signing him on a free would be hugely attractive for Mark Allen and the Light Blues, especially considering the likely wage demands Skrtel would have if he were to entertain talks with the club, however, whether the club can get him to the table remains to be seen.
With the likes of Parma and Olympiakos both thought to be interested, they could have a fight on their hands.
