Liverpool may find themselves trying to hold on to another star player after Barcelona made a £15m bid for Daniel Agger, reports the Daily Express.
Brendan Rodgers already has his plate full with want-away striker Luis Suarez agitating vigorously about the club's refusal to sell him.
But now a potential transfer saga threatens to ensue as Barcelona have made Agger their No.1 defensive target.
It is reported that Barcelona's first bid of £15m was flatly rejected by the Anfield club but a renewed offer is expected to be launched in the coming days. £25m is thought to be enough to convince Liverpool to part with the Dane.
Agger, who missed Liverpool's pre-season game against Valerenga, is tempted by a move to the Nou Camp but will not go to the lengths Suarez has gone to in order to secure a transfer away from Merseyside.
The potential departure of Agger has muddied the waters with regards to Barcelona's bid for Chelsea star David Luiz.
An official bid had been launched for the defender-come-midfielder but the Express are reporting that despite their interest, Agger remains their preferred option.
It is also thought that Liverpool have performed a U-turn with regards to Martin Skrtel's future as a result of Barcelona's interest in Agger.
Skrtel had been told by the club that he was free to leave this summer but, with Agger potentially departing, Rodgers has decided to hold on to the Slovakian.
