AC Milan to bid for £12m Liverpool man: What should Rafa do?

Posted by

After a raft of reports linking this Anfield defender to Real Madrid now it appears another European giant is lining up a January move for this Great Dane.

Milan are ready to launch an assault for under-fire Liverpool stopper Daniel Agger, according to Il Corriere Dello Sport.

The Danish central defender doesn’t seem a part of the project ‘Pool coach Rafa Benitez has planned and he is unlikely to renew his current deal, which expires in 2010.

Agger is a loggerheads with his coach as he has been used as a bit-part player at Anfield. He is now being looked at by the Rossoneri as a possible replacement for the injury prone Alessandro Nesta.

Il Corriere Dello Sport claims Milan are ready to make a move and they will insert French midfielder Yoann Gourcuff, currently on-loan at Bordeaux, as part of the deal.

The 24-year-old has been advised to the San Siro club by former Rossonero Tomas Helveg and the club is ready to move and shake by tempting the Premier League side with a bid during the January transfer window. (

£12m rated Agger has been left warming the bench for the duration of the season thus far but with Martin Skrtel out with a long term injury he will surely have more of a shot at convincing Rafa just how much he has to offer. You can see why AC Milan would be interested, Daniel is a quality player who eased into the first team picture as soon as he arrived from Brondby but then fell foul to injury problems and now finds himself behind first choice pairing of Skrtel and Carragher. One feels that Benitez will have to play the situation carefully by letting the centre back know he has a future at the club and keeping interested parties at bay. Do Liverpool fans think that Agger has a future at the club once the Slovakian man mountain Skrtel returns from injury?
