Arsenal could offer frustrated Liverpool defender Daniel Agger a route out of Anfield, according to reports.

28-year-old Agger joined the Reds from Danish outfit Brondby in January 2006 and eventually went on to forge a deserved reputation as one of the Premier League's most formidable defensive talents.

However, despite this, the Denmark international has fallen dramatically down the pecking order on Merseyside this season and has made just five appearances in the Premier League as manager Brendan Rodgers has regularly opted for two summer signings in the shape of Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho.

According to reports in the Daily Telegraph, Agger could be willing to leave Liverpool if he does not manage to force himself into the first-team reckoning. 

"If I don't play, and if the manager doesn't think I am good enough, that could make me leave Liverpool," he said.

"I'm here to play football, nothing else. So if I don't play football, then I don't want to be here anymore."

The same reports also suggest that Premier League leaders Arsenal and La Liga giants Barcelona could be the two clubs willing to offer Agger the chance to leave Anfield. Arsene Wenger's men appear to be keen to add depth to their backline, with captain Thomas Vermaelen linked with a switch away from the Emirates Stadium.

The Catalan outfit, also expected to be in the market for defensive reinforcements, reportedly made a bid of £14.6 million for the defender's services that was rejected during the summer transfer window.
