Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is ready to return to former club Swansea to sign Ashley Williams, as Daniel Agger is targeted by Manchester City.

According to the Daily Mail, the former Swans boss - who has also been knocked back in his attempts to entice Team GB star Joe Allen to Anfield - is facing up to the reality of the Danish defender's departure, despite still having two years to run on his existing contract.

Real Madrid have also been monitoring Agger's situation, as Jose Mourinho prepares a bid to rival the £20million that City are ready to lodge.

Williams has been capped 33 times by Wales, and impressed in his debut season in the Premier League. At 28, the uncompromising defender is about to enter the peak of his career, and Rodgers hopes he can play a big part at the heart of the Reds' back line.

Whilst Liverpool are under no pressure to sell Agger, American owner John W Henry is reportedly tempted to sell, despite knocking back two bids by Roberto Mancini.

Agger played no part in the Reds' Europa League tie in Belarus last Thursday, intimating that his long-term future lies away from Merseyside.
