Liverpool fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as our landlord tells them what he has just read in Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo.
The publication seems to think that Daniel Agger will be offloaded by the club and Barcelona are closely monitoring the situation.
Some of our punters are not too keen for the Catalan giants to land the long-serving Danish defender given they are already taking Luis Suarez off the Reds’ hands.
However, we think that Brendan Rodgers wants to sell and it would be ideal for Barcelona to come in and take the unwanted player off his hands.
One of our regulars also notes that last season’s Premier League runners-up will need to make sure that they bring in at least a couple of defenders this summer with sufficient cover at the back being vital.
The Reds’ shaky defence was a major reason why Liverpool lost out on the title last season and it cannot be the case once again.
Another valid point from one of our punters over a pint is that without Luis Suarez to rely on for goals, a clean sheet may be even more important next season.
Liverpool fans. Can you cope without Agger? Would you mind Barcelona taking another one of your stars this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
