According to Inside Futbol, Inter Milan are closely monitoring the status of contract renewal negotiations between English side Liverpool and player Martin Skrtel.

Although Skrtel's contract with Liverpool expired at the end of the Premier League season, the Slovakian player has confirmed his interest in remaining with Liverpool, saying that Liverpool have made an offer and that he is committed to his current club.

If, however, Skrtel chooses not to return to Anfield next season, then Inter are poised to make a swoop for the 30-year-old center back this summer.

It makes sense that Mancini would want to pursue Skrtel. He is a proven quantity who should certainly have a few more good seasons left in the tank. Skrtel's presence as a starter in the Inter back line could be a huge confidence-booster for the defense as a whole, and his leadership and mentorship could prove to be immensely valuable to the younger Nerazzurri defensive contingent.

How would you feel if Inter signed Skrtel? Let us know below.
