Martin Skrtel Out, 3 Perfect Replacements In – Scouting For Liverpool’s Centre Back

Martin Skrtel had been one of the permanent fixtures of Liverpool’s starting eleven in the previous few seasons. The 28 year old Slovakian had a dream season under Brendan Rodgers in the 2013/14 season in which Liverpool came agonizingly close to winning the Premier League title. He was one of the highest scoring defenders, but this season he has been a mere shadow of the Martin Skrtel we know. He was in the starting eleven at the beginning of the season, but a continuous dip in form, Lovren and Sakho building a great partnership and injuries have made him the third choice defender. It is certain that Klopp will replace him in the transfer market.

Here are three defenders who can be perfect replacements to Martin Skrtel.

1.) Niklas Sule

Niklas Sule

The Hoffenhiem defender has been one of the best defenders in the Bundesliga this season and is in top form. He has a phenomenal tackle success rate and is in the radar of Jürgen Klopp. With Liverpool in need of some defensive stability, Sule could be the player that they are looking for. He is good at defending set pieces, something that has haunted Liverpool throughout the season. Niklas Sule is the perfect replacement for Martin Skrtel and Liverpool are expected to sign him.
