This source suggests that the Serie A giants are about to make raid on the Merseyside oufit
The Serie A giants reckon they can take advantage of the financial uncertainty at Anfield and sign both players next summer.
Juve tried to buy Kop flop Babel in 2007 before he made his £11.5million switch from Ajax.
The Dutch winger has never lived up to his billing in the Premier League, but Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri believes he can be a success in Italy’s top flight.
Defender Agger, 24, is in a stand-off with Liverpool over a new contract – and has also attracted the interest of AC Milan as a replacement for ageing Paolo Maldini, 40.
In turn Reds boss Rafa Benitez is tracking Hull defender Michael Turner, 25, along with Manchester City.
But Tigers chairman Paul Duffen has issued a hands-off warning to Liverpool and the Eastlands side.
He said: “There are no players who have regularly played in the first team who will be sold in January.” (Daily Miror)
Both Agger and Babel have had periods of irritation with regards to Rafa’s decision making. The Dutch winger has apparently voiced his concerns about not getting enough first term action but he would be better placed taking into account that without his involvement the side is top of the table so not sure what he expects Benitez to do? Ryan is a quality player but until he can be more effective and consistent he won’t be getting a regular slot in the team. As for Daniel Agger, well he has had some serious injuries to contend with but still seems to be part of the boss’s plans. I don’t see the club considering selling either player and if the Spanish supremo wants to get more funds to help him finance January transfer moves he is more likely to try to offload the likes of Pennant, Voronin, Itandje, Dossena and Degen. Do Liverpool supporters believe either Babel and Agger will be leaving the club anytime soon?
