The Daily Mail say that Spanish newspaper Sport are reporting an imminent offer for the Danish international.

Agger has been linked with a move to the Catalan giants before, but always maintained he will stay at Liverpool for as long as he’s wanted.

The 29-year-old’s first-team opportunities may be limited at Anfield following the signings of Mamadou Sakho last summer and Dejan Lovren, who is expected to complete a £20 million move from Southampton this weekend.

Lovren will become the third Southampton player to make the switch to Liverpool this summer, following the signings of Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.

The St Mary’s exodus might not be stopping there if the Mail on Sunday is correct (via Daily Mirror), suggesting Brendan Rodgers is keen to sign attacker Jay Rodriguez.[td_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_1″]

Rodriguez is currently sidelined until October following surgery on a ruptured anterior cruciate, which ended his hopes of going to the World Cup with England.
