Agger left Liverpool's pre-season tour of the US early, after reportedly breaking down in tears in the dressing room, but Rodgers will seek a meeting with him next week to decide his future.
Arsenal and Barcelona are both believed to be interested in the 29-year-old but the Daily Telegraph report that no inquiry has been made by either club.
Agger's decision is not believed to because he has a specific offer on the table.
The Dane often found himself out of the team last season with Rodgers selecting Martin Skrtel as his first choice and rotating between Agger, Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure.
Agger started just 20 matches in the Premier League and with Dejan Lovren arriving from Southampton he has slipped further down the pecking order.
Agger was on Thursday reported to have broken down in tears in the changing room and pleaded with Rodgers to let him leave Anfield,
Since joining from Danish side Brondby for £6m in 2005, Agger has made 232 appearances for the Merseyside club. He has also gone on to become a key figure in the Denmark national team, having made 64 appearances for his country who he now captains.
