Inter Milan manager Rafa Benitez is looking to lure Daniel Agger away from the manager's former club Liverpool in the January transfer window.
Benitez is currently looking to strengthen his defence after Walter Samuel suffered ligament damage to his knee, sustained during Inter's clash with Brescia.
This injury has left the ex-Liverpool manager short of defensive options and needing to bring in reinforcements in the January transfer window.
Benitez told the press: “Since we’ve lost such an important player as Samuel, we will have to arrange the roster in January.’’
A Danish international, Agger is believed to be Rafa's first choice to bolster his defence.
It is acknowledged that his consistently impressed Benitez during his time at Anfield to the extant that Benitez persuaded the Liverpool board to give the defender a new £70,000 a week contract for four years.
However, Agger has missed a substantial part of Liverpool's season so far suffering from a calf problem, meaning that the Spanish manager may be put off paying for the defender.
Although sources suggest that Benitez is hoping the 25-year-old defender will be fully fit come January.
