Barca and Brondby set to battle for Daniel Agger

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is at the centre of a tug of war between Barcelona and former club Brondby, according to the Daily Mail.

The centre back’s future at Anfield has been placed into doubt by the arrival of Dejan Lovren from Southampton, with Agger having admitted earlier in the summer he was not prepared to be a third choice at the club for much longer.

The Dane struggled for regular first team football last season, and with Brendan Rodgers having rejected an offer for Kolo Toure from Trabzonspor already, it seems Agger could be the defender forced to make way.

The 29-year-old has attracted interest from Barcelona for a long time, whilst a major shareholder at former club Brondby says the club are set to do ‘everything in their power’ to tempt Agger back to Denmark.

Agger joined the Reds from Brondby in January 2006, and was named vice-captain following the retirement of Jamie Carragher last summer.

The future of another Liverpool defender remains uncertain, with Glen Johnson entering the final year of his contract at Anfield, with no word on a new deal as of yet.

The former Chelsea right back could see his place come under threat with reports suggesting deals are close for Spanish full backs Alberto Moreno and Javier Manquillo.
