The Daily Miroor are reporting that Liverpool centre back Daniel Agger has begged Reds boss Brendan Rodgers for a transfer away from the Merseyside club.
Despite signing a new contract in 2012 keeping him at the club till 2016, he is now set to leave. The Mirror are reporting that Agger requested a transfer during a conversation with Rodgers in the dressing room during their pre-season tour.
Since joining the Red's in January 2006 Agger has made 175 Barclays Premier league appearances, 19 of them as substitutes. He has scored 9 goals in these 175 games.
Agger's Liverpool career
After Jamie Carragher's retirement, Agger became vice captain at Liverpool. During the 2013/14 season Agger made 20 appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool, four of these as a substitute. However the Dane has been usurped in his position by new signing Mamadou Sakho who started in the other 18 games in Agger's position.
Dejan Lovren's arrival
Agger looks set to be usurped once again by Dejan Lovren's arrival at Liverpool for £20 million. Lovren's arrival means that Liverpool now have five centre backs at the club with Kolo Toure who also arrived last season.
Toure also made 20 appearances for Liverpool in the premier League last season which again pushed Agger to the fringes of the Liverpool team.
Barcelona interested in Agger
The Mirror are reporting that it looks like Agger will follow star striker Luis Suarez from moving from Merseyside to Barcelona.
The centre back will cost the Catalan giants £12 million, which if were to happen, Thomas Vermaelen would likely leave Arsenal for Manchester United.
