Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has emerged as a target for Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg.

The German side, managed by former England boss Steve McLaren, have made a slow start to their current campaign, and have reportedly targeted the Liverpool defender in a bid to strengthen their back line, according to talkSPORT.

Juventus are the other leading European outfit thought to be keen on the player, although a current defender crisis at Anfield means it's unclear if the Liverpool boss is still willing to sell the player.

Roy Hodgson is thought to have been promised a sizable transfer kitty from new Liverpool owners NESV, but a decent fee received from the sale of Agger would almost certainly be re-invested in additional bodies at Anfield.

The Merseyside outfit have been linked with a number of defenders, including Mamadou Sakho and Philippe Mexes, and could attempt to sign more than one in January should they decide to let the Danish international leave Liverpool.

Agger moved to the Premier League outfit in 2007, but has been unable to sustain fitness following the arrival of Hodgson at Liverpool. This is thought to be the reason why he could let the player leave the club.
