Liverpool endured a tough last campaign finishing a lowly seventh in the Premier League table. With Brendan Rodgers looking to vastly improve that result, we take a look at five potential signings for him to consider in the centre-back department.
This summer sees the first time since 1996 that a Liverpool squad will not start the season with Jamie Carragher as an option at the heart of defence. In addition, two of Liverpool’s centre-backs have been consistently linked with moves to other clubs before the new season starts.
Barcelona are known to admire Daniel Agger with some media outlets reporting a bid of £12million a few days ago from the Catalan giants. Similarly, the odds with many bookmakers on Martin Skrtel re-joining the man that took him to Liverpool have been slashed. If the Slovakian becomes a Napoli player it will leave Rodgers with one if not two vacancies at the back even with the signing of Kolo Toure.
