Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is interested on a move which will see the Denmark international switch from the Premier League to Spanish giants Barcelona, according to his representatives.

The Daily Mail report that Agger's representatives have indicated he would be open to a move to Barcelona if Liverpool can agree a fee for the defender's release.

It's also reported that Barcelona have made a £15m bid for the Denmark international, but Liverpool deny that any offer for the 28-year-old has been received.

Agger, who is Liverpool's vice-captain, is seen as a replacement target for Chelsea defender David Luiz, who Barcelona made a formal bid for last week. 

The Blues rejected Barcelona's bid, slapping a £50m price tag on the Brazilian international defender.

Agger has seen interest from Barcelona in the past, where Barcelona are looking for replacements to fill the voyage in their defence which seems to be their weak point in the starting 11.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is adamant that the Reds will retain Agger's services for next campaign, but are still looking into Luiz's situation, hoping the 26-year-old centre back will make the switch to the Nou Camp from Chelsea.

Suggestions have been made that Liverpool are keen to sign Paris Saint-Germain and France international defender Mamadou Sakho, if Agger does leave the Premier League side.

Agger is seen as a cheaper option to Luiz, but the Dane's peak is arriving sooner than Luiz's, who is two years younger than the Danish defender.
