Liverpool are considering letting Daniel Agger leave the club as part of the deal that will see Napoli midfielder Gokhan Inler arrive at Anfield, reports the London Metro.

The Danish defender is wanted by former Reds boss Rafa Benitez at Stadio San Paolo, and hopes to negotiate a deal that will see him swap Merseyside for Serie 'A'.

Brendan Rodgers's determination to sign a replacement for the injured Lucas Leiva could force Liverpool into sanctioning Agger's sale, as it looks as though that will be the only way they can secure the services of 29-year-old Inler.

The Switzerland international has been a first-team regular for Napoli this season, but could be surrendered in order for Benitez to land his man.

Agger meanwhile is currently out-of-favour at Anfield, and despite the Liverpool manager's initial reluctance to let him leave in the mid-season window, it now looks like he's prepared to make a U-turn.
