Liverpool boss hints of Agger sale


Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool coach, admits Daniel Agger has a price.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with the Denmark international this summer, with reports suggesting they have already had one offer in the region of £16million rejected. Roberto Mancini remains determined to bolster his back four, though, and is expected to return with an improved bid before the start of the season.

Agger has proven himself to be a key member of the Anfield defence, and last season struck up a solid pairing with Martin Skrtel. Despite this, Rodgers has given the broadest hint yet that he would be prepared to offload the 27-year-old for the right price.

"Daniel is a top player and you do not want to lose your best players," said the former Swansea City manager. "He has been here seven years. He loves the club and its supporters. But every player has his price and we will see where it goes."

It has been claimed that Liverpool would accept a £22million bid for Agger, yet it is also being reported that they may settle for a lesser fee if City are prepared to include one of their players in the deal. Winger Adam Johnson, who missed out on a place in the England squad for Euro 2012, has been mentioned, and there is also thought to be interest in striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
