Barcelona target Liverpool defender Daniel Agger
Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger is a transfer target for Barcelona.
The Catalan giants launched an official bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz yesterday. At that stage, Agger was widely touted as their preferred backup option if they failed to entice to Luiz to Camp Nou.
But the latest reports suggest Barca would like to bolster their defensive ranks by bringing in both Agger and Luiz.
The Spanish media claims a £14m bid has been made for the Denmark international, but the Reds insist they have received no formal offer.
Agger was linked with a £30m move to Manchester City last summer when Liverpool rejected a bid. His stock has arguably fallen slightly since then, but he is still unlikely to leave Anfield unless Barca are willing to move closer to £20m.
Liverpool have put Martin Skrtel’s move to Napoli on hold as they suspect he could be needed as a regular starter this season if Barca step-up their interest in Agger.
