Agger on Milan shortlist

AC Milan have confirmed recent suggestions that they are interested in bringing Liverpool’s Danish international defender Daniel Agger to the San Siro.

With negotiations over Agger’s new contract at Anfield reportedly struggling, he has been linked with a move to the Serie A club in the English and Italian press lately.

Today Milan’s vice-president Adriano Galliani confirmed that they have been keeping an eye on Agger, who is currently enjoying a run of first team games with Slovakian Martin Skrtel out injured for the Reds.

Galliani told Danish web site, “We are going to sign a new defender in January, there’s is no doubt about that.

“We have kept a frequent eye on Agger and his situation at Liverpool and have of course noticed the problems that Agger and Liverpool have on agreeing on a new contract.

“We have a list of three or four names that could be used in the defence. Agger is one of those names.”

Agger himself though recently rubbished speculation linking him with a January move away from Merseyside, insisting he is happy competing for a place in Rafa Benitez’s defence.
