Napoli 'cannot afford' Skrtel - agent

Martin Skrtel's agent does not believe Napoli can afford to sign the defender from Liverpool this summer.

Skrtel, 28, has been linked with a move away from Anfield after he lost his place in Brendan Rodgers' side towards the end of last season.

The Slovakia international has been tipped to join Napoli, where former Reds manager Rafael Benitez is now in charge.

However, his agent, Karol Csonto, feels a move to the Serie A team is unlikely as his wages could prove a sticking point.

"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," he told Tuttomercatoweb.

"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."
