Liverpool ace poised for exit - Spurs ready to swoop

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is reportedly in discussions with Fiorentina regarding a potential move, while Tottenham are set to snatch Sebastien Frey from the Italian club.

Serie A giants Juventus and Inter Milan are also said to be interested in Agger, who has been linked with a move away from Merseyside for several months.

The Dane failed to see eye-to-eye with former Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson and was known to be keen to leave the club while Hodgson remained in charge at Anfield.

"I still have three years on my contract but it's not me who decides if I'm playing," Agger told prior to Hodgson's departure.

"But if I'm not playing and I'm not injured, I have no reason to be here. I'm 26 and I feel I can play regularly at this level at this club.

"So if I'm not going to play and be on the bench for a while, obviously I'm not interested in being here. Then I must see what options I have."

And now, despite Kenny Dalglish becoming the new Liverpool boss, the 26-year-old has held talks over a possible move.

"The Viola offered the Liverpool player €1.5 million (£1.25m) per annum, but he wants at least €2m (£1.68m) net a year," transfer market representative Bernado Brovarone told a radio station - as reported by

"Also, we have to see what Liverpool says."

With Agger potentially on his way into Florence, Sebastien Frey has been tipped to head in the opposite direction and join Tottenham.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Spurs are ready to swoop for the 30-year-old goalkeeper when his contract expires in the summer in order to replace Hereulho Gomes.

Although a fine goalie on his day, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is thought to have grown frustrated at the inconsistent performances from the Brazilian and is now sounding out potential replacements.

Frey would come to White Hart Lane with an impressive pedigree, although whether Spurs launch a bid to capture the Frenchman remains to be seen.
