Skrtel has been an integral part of the Liverpool defence since joining them from Zenit St Petersbrug in 2008 and was voted as their Player of the Year last season as the Reds managed only an eighth place finish in the Premier League.
The Slovakian is currently in talks to renew his contract with Liverpool which runs out in 2014 but the 27-year-old revealed that talks with the club have stalled and he has had offers from other clubs at the moment.
Speaking to Slovakian newspaper Dennik Sport, Skrtel said: "I am a player of Liverpool because I have a valid contract here. There exist a number of offers but without the permission of Liverpool nothing can move forward.
"We have been in talks about a new contract but it has not moved forward. At the moment I am a Liverpool player and what happens in future in football you can never foresee.
"Anything can happen but for now I have a valid contract and what is to come will come."
Skrtel also lauded the changes that newly-appointed manager Brendan Rodgers has implemented, praising the relaxed atmospheer and open channels of communications at the club.
He added: "He is absolutely OK. His motto is an open approach towards players and he is very human in the way he tries to communicate with us as much as possible.
"Thanks to him, the atmosphere within the club has changed. It is now more relaxed.
"He told us right on the first training session we had the door open any time and anything we need we should come to him. He is a little bit different from Dalglish in this."
