Liverpool ace set for three-way transfer battle

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is set to be the subject of a three-way transfer battle after reports claim Manchester City have made an offer for the Danish international.

Agger is said to have already told Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers that he wants to quit Anfield and Mirror Football suggest City have lodged a bid of £13 million for the 27-year-old.

Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are also interested in Agger and Liverpool now face a battle to keep hold of one of their most senior squad players.

Capped 49 times by Denmark, Agger arrived at Anfield from Brondby in a 2006 deal said to be worth around £6 million. The Hvidovre-born star has become a firm favourite on Merseyside and has gone on to make over 170 appearances for the club.

The reports suggest Agger is set to decide whether his future lies in Manchester or Spain during the next two weeks, something which would leave Liverpool facing a major setback ahead of the new Barclays Premier League campaign.
