Barcelona turn attention to Liverpool ace

Defender Daniel Agger

Barcelona are increasing their interest in Liverpool defender Daniel Agger this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Catalan club have already tried and failed to sign PSG’s Thiago Silva and Chelsea’s David Luiz this month and so turn to Agger to solve their defensive issues.

Tito Vilanova stepped down as Barcelona boss on Friday due to his ongoing battle with cancer and so the new manager will make signing a world class centre back his first duty as manager.

The Danish international is currently in Jakarta with the full Liverpool squad on their pre-season tour and manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that he will be keeping all of his best players this summer including Agger and Luis Suarez.

The Reds are willing to fight off interest in Agger as they had to do in January but Barcelona are becoming desperate for a central defender and so a big money offer could come to Merseyside in the coming weeks.
