Transfer news: Liverpool defender Daniel Agger would be open to move to Barcelona according to agent
Liverpool defender would consider opening talks with Spanish champions
Monday 12 August 2013
Daniel Agger’s agent Per Steffensen has suggested the Dane would consider a move to Barcelona, and confirmed the Spaniards made a bid – reported to be £15m – for the centre-back that was rejected.
Agger’s situation depends on developments on Chelsea defender David Luiz, a more expensive option for Barcalona with the Brazilian valued at around £30m.
“We are aware that Barcelona have made an offer for Daniel that Liverpool have rejected,” Steffensen said.
“Daniel has a contract with Liverpool for the next three years and it would be up to the clubs to agree a fee for his transfer in order for that to change.”
With Jamie Carragher now retired, Agger has been promoted to Liverpool’s vice-captain. An ever-present, the Denmark international appeared in 35 out of the club’s 38 Premier League matches last season.
The 28-year-old has been at Anfield since he joined in 2006 from Danish club Brondby, and he has gone on to make over 200 appearances in his Reds career to date.
