Napoli manager Rafael Benitez is planning a reunion with Daniel Agger in Italy and plans to rival Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur for the Liverpool defender's signature.
TalkSPORT reports how the Denmark international has been heavily linked with a move away from Merseyside after allegedly pleading with Brendan Rodgers to sanction his sale this summer.
The former Reds boss is responsible for bringing Agger to Anfield in a £6 million deal in 2006 and now wants to be reunited with the player at Stadio San Paolo.
Benitez will face stiff competition for the 29-year-old's services though, with north London rivals Arsenal and Spurs also both vying for the player.
Arsene Wenger is in desperate need of defensive reinforcements at the Emirates Stadium following the £15 million departure of Thomas Vermaelen to Barcelona.
The Arsenal manager has added versatile star Calum Chambers from Southampton, but requires additional cover for first-choice pairing Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.
Mauricio Pochettino has also been credited with an interest in bringing Agger to White Hart Lane, as the new Spurs boss continues his search for new players.
However - like Wenger - the Argentine coach will not land the Liverpool star easily, after Benitez stepped up plans to lure the central defender to Serie 'A'.
Agger has fallen way down the first-team pecking order at Anfield with Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho often Rodgers's preferred central defensive pairing last season.
Liverpool future in doubt
The £20 million acquisition of Croatia international Dejan Lovren from Southampton will also ensure competition for places is even stronger in 2014/15, and could reduce the former Brøndby star to an even more peripheral role in the side.
It's believed that Liverpool will demand around £12 million for the Danish star, which means Napoli will need to sell before they buy to create funds and the necessary room in the first-team squad.
One player that has been linked with a possible move away from Naples is South American stopper Federico Fernandez, with the Argentina international considering a transfer to the Premier League with Swansea City.
