Martin Skrtel says there has been no contact regarding his services, suggesting that outside interest in him is merely speculation.

The Liverpool centre-back has emerged as a reported target for champions Manchester City but he insists that he or the club have not been approached by anyone.

"In the press there have been rumours about my future," Skrtel said on his personal website.

"I would like to say that so far I have not received any specific offers and I have not been in talks with any club.

"I'm looking forward to the new season very much and believe we will be well prepared for it and it will be better than the last one."
