Liverpool star wanted by La Liga giants

agger.jpgLiverpool supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern have been left concerned with reports from The Express that Barcelona are eyeing up a summer move for Daniel Agger.

Barcelona are looking to replace the ageing Carles Puyol with a world class centre back and had targeted Paris Saint-Germain ace Thiago Silva as their top priority but he now looks likely to remain in the French capital.

While Chelsea star David Luiz is thought to be their second option, today’s report indicates that the Camp Nou side are also looking to Anfield to solve their defensive issues.

In an interview with Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool academy chief Rodolfo Borrell, feels Agger has the ability to play for the Spanish champions.

“Agger has the right characteristics to adapt to Barca’s play,” Borrell said.

“He is a very trustworthy centre-half, above all on the ball, because he comes out very well with it.

“In a style like Barca’s, a defender must have a good pass, make the right decisions, be quick when the team loses the ball and good in the air at set-pieces both in defence and attack. Agger fulfils all these qualities.”

Should Liverpool do everything possible to keep Agger at the club this summer? Will this move come to pass? Let us know your thoughts below.
