Barcelona set to move for Agger?
Posted On March 7, 2013
Liverpool centre-back Daniel Agger is reportedly a target for Spanish giants Barcelona.
With both Carlos Puyol and Eric Abidal coming to the end of their careers, the La Liga leaders are on the look-out for defensive reinforcements, and the Mirror claim that Danish international is top of their wish list.
However, with Jamie Carragher retiring, and both Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates seemingly on their way out of the club, the Reds would be reluctant to lose the 28 year old, who has started all but one Premier League game this season.
Elsewhere, Valencia defender Aly Cissokho has suggested that he may join Liverpool, after telling French newspaper Le Parisien that “it’s pleasing” to be linked with the club.
The one time France International, who has been linked with a move to Anfield in the past, moved to Spain last summer after four successful seasons with Lyon in Ligue 1.
Napoli have expressed their interest in Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez, who is reportedly a target of Brendon Rodgers.
The Chilean forward has made just nine starts in La Liga this season, scoring one goal.
Finally, the Reds have taken promising forward Gavin Rose on trial.
The 18 year old, who was released by Reading last summer, has this season scored 23 goals in 23 games for Ryman South side Dulwich Hamlet.
