Daniel Agger might play in Italian Calcio: Big clubs after him
Inter, Juventus and AC Milan are after defender Daniel Agger. The talented defender will go to Italy soon.
Yes, Agger appeared to be heading out of Anfield in January when Milan moved to take him to the San Siro and opened informal talks about a transfer.
Indeed, the defender has grown frustrated under manager Rafael Benitez after being relegated to the substitutes’ bench on returning from a series of injuries this season.
The Spaniard publicly insists that the footballer remains part of his long-term plans, and in despite of that, there is a growing sense of certainty to Agger leaving.
As we know, both Jose Mourinho and Claudio Ranieri, managers of Inter and Juventus respectively, have been alerted to the prospect of signing Agger, a highly rated Danish international, for a relatively modest fee in the summer, according to a report in the Mail.
Agger has little more than a year to run on his current contract at Liverpool and negotiations over a new deal have almost irretrievably stalled.
It’s amazing to notice that should Agger remain on the fringes of Benitez’s side then a summer move is likely, with Liverpool in a weak bargaining position when it comes to the fee.
We must consider that AC Milan remain the favourites to secure his signature and in despite of that, the competition from the two other Serie A giants may make the deal more problematic that it might otherwise have been.
