Danish defender Daniel Agger’s Liverpool future is in doubt after Spanish giants Barcelona expressed an interest in him. Agger’s agent Per Steffersen revealed that the Dane is aware Liverpool turned down a bid of around £15m last week, and said his future will be resolved after further talks. But Agger is believed to be open to a move should the chance arise.
The Danish international was named his club’s vice-captain for this season by coach Brendan Rodgers and he will not make life difficult for Liverpool by trying to force a move. However, the 28-year-old may also know he may never get an opportunity to join one of the world’s super powers again.
Steffenen said they are aware Barcelona’s initial bid was rejected, adding that the defender has three years left on his current Liverpool deal and, for any move to happen, the clubs would have to come up with a fee that is acceptable for both parties.
Agger was absent for his team’s 1-0 friendly defeat to Celtic in Dublin on Saturday as he continues his recovery from an injury picked up during club captain Steven Gerrard’s testimonial.
Barcelona are also said to be monitoring the situation of Chelsea’s Brazilian defender David Luiz.
