Liverpool Plan Double Swoop To Replace Agger

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could replace defender Daniel Agger with a double swoop for Schalke’s Kyriakos Papadopoulos and Sporting Lisbon’s Marco Rojo.

Italian side Napoli are keen on bringing Agger to Serie A in the summer with manager Rafa Benitez a big fan of the Dane from his time at Anfield.

It is believed that Rodgers would be willing to sell the 29-year-old after he has made just 15 Premier League starts this season.

And according to the Express, he is ready to replace him with Greek defender Papadopoulos and Rojo in the summer.

Rodgers is set to be handed a £50million transfer kitty after qualifying for the Champions League and strengthening his defence remains a key priority.

Papadopoulos, 22, is a long term target of Liverpool’s and is a highly rated central defender in the Bundesliga.

Rodgers is also keen on adding a new left-back to the squad and has identified Rojo as the perfect addition.

The 24-year-old has broken into the Argentinean squad and looks set to travel to the World Cup.
