After missing out on the signing of Thiago Silva, Barcelona are reportedly looking at Liverpool defender Daniel Agger as a possible signing. The Dane has been linked with a move away from Liverpool for the last 12 months. However, manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he does not expect the 28-year-old to leave the club between now and the end of the transfer window. Liverpool are already on the verge of losing striker Luis Suarez, who recently revealed that he would like to leave the club after just two years.
Suarez has been one of the important players at the club since joining them in a £ 26 million deal back in 2011. However, he has been subjected to interest from Arsenal, who are ready to offer in excess of £ 40 million for the 26-year-old. Barcelona could come in with an offer of around £ 25 million Agger, which would be extremely hard to resist. Manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Agger is someone who has impressed him spectacularly with his loyalty and commitment to the club.
Rodgers has been speaking for the similar style about Suarez for the last few weeks, but striker recently revealed that he wants to leave Liverpool to play in the Champions league.
“This is all about loyalty. He’s obviously a world-class defender. Daniel is very committed to Liverpool; he’s one of the players that have really impressed me. If we’re talking about loyalty, he was one of the first players that I spoke to when I became the manager. At the time, there were a number of big clubs looking to sign Daniel. But he gave me his word that for as long as I wanted him to be at Liverpool, he would be at Liverpool. He has never swayed from that,” said Rodgers.
