Barcelona defender urges club to sign Liverpool star

Barcelona are reportedly ready to reignite their interest in Liverpool defender Daniel Agger during the summer transfer window, after the talents of the Dane were endorsed by former Reds teammate Javier Mascherano.

According to the Daily Express, Barcelona are not prepared to give up on Agger after missing out on his signature last summer, and the Catalan club have been urged to sign him by centre-back Mascherano.

Agger and Mascherano played together at Anfield for four seasons before the latter left Liverpool for Barcelona in a deal worth €24 million, and the Argentine now reportedly wants his ex-clubmate at the Camp Nou.

The 28-year-old Denmark international has excelled under the tutelage of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers this term, and his ability to play the ball out from the back marks him out as an ideal acquisition for Barcelona.

Barcelona are on the lookout for new recruits at the centre of defence with Carles Puyol edging towards the end of his career, while Eric Abidal has just returned to competitive action after well-documented health problems.

Abidal underwent an liver transplant in April of last year, before making his first appearance for the Barcelona first-team in almost exactly 12 months when he featured against Mallorca three weeks ago.
