Barcelona Continue Seesaw Over Agger

Barcelona is reportedly ready to make a bid for Liverpool defender Daniel Agger after a year of interest that has yet to mount to anything.

Agger has been on Barcelona’s radar for a while and it seems the interest has not died with the arrival of Gerardo Martino as manager.

The La Liga champions are lining up a possible move for the Danish international with Martino keen to strengthen Barcelona’s defence, the Daily Star reports.

According to the article, Martino believes Agger will suit Barcelona’s playing style but is wary of paying too much for the centre back.

It won’t be easy, however, with Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers desperate to keep Agger after the retirement of Jamie Carragher and the future of Martin Skrtel in the air.

Agger has played at Liverpool since 2006, racking up over 150 Premier League appearances for the club, including 35 of the 38 matches last season.
