Liverpool braced as European big boys monitor Anfield ace

Juventus, Inter Milan and Wolfsburg are all allegedly lining-up bids for Liverpool defender Daniel Agger.

According to Italian website Itasportpress, Liverpool have received enquiries about Agger's value from all three clubs as the race for the Denmark international hots up.

But, despite Agger's ongoing injury problems, he is thought to still be in the plans of Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson.

The Anfield supremo is understood to be concerned at the lack of depth in his defensive ranks - especially after the long-term injury to Liverpool vice-captain Jamie Carragher - so intends to keep as many stoppers on his books as possible.

Agger began the season operating as a left-back for Liverpool and, after the Anfield club's poor start to the campaign, the 25-year-old appeared to hit out at the tactics employed by the new Liverpool manager.

However, the former Brondby centre-back refuted these claims; explaining that he had been misquoted in the Danish media.

"I am very disappointed with the papers in Denmark for the way they have done this story," he told the official Liverpool website.

"I spoke to Danish TV after the game [with Manchester United] and answered the questions that were put to me. I didn’t speak to the papers.

"What came out was one hundred per cent wrong and that is why I am very disappointed.

"An example is the quote about me not playing long balls. I actually think we play good football and that we have showed that against United and against Arsenal."

Hodgson is thought to be keen to add to his threadbare defence in January, with Lille's Adil Rami and Bolton star Gary Cahill both linked with moves to Liverpool.
