Emirates and White Hart Lane boss’s both interested in Anfield defender.
Arch North London rival Arsenal and Tottenham are rumoured to be set to fight it out for Liverpool defender Daniel Agger. The Danish international currently has a back problem but has also had recent run-ins with boss Roy Hodgson and could well be available for the right price.
The 25 year old former Brondby man spoke out during an interview with Danish TV about his opinions of Hodgson’s tactical approach and even when fully fit he appears not to be a player the Anfield boss sees as first choice a fact borne out by the fact that Agger has started just three Premier League matches this season with another three appearances from the bench.
The adaptable talent can play at left back as well as his more customary position in the centre of defence and has a fair bit of ability on the ball and the ability to score some quality screamers from long range. Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is having a central defensive nightmare this season with most of his options sidelined with long term injuries and the White Hart Lane boss has stated publicly that he will be looking to strengthen this area as soon as possible.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has also stated his desire to bring in another defensive option and Agger’s proven Premier League credentials may make him an ideal candidate to bring in to the Emirates.
Daniel Agger wouldn’t appear to be the type of player to attempt to force his way out of a club he clearly has a great affinity for but if he felt that he was fighting a losing battle to prove to Hodgson of his worth then if the right bid came along then perhaps the Liverpool boss would happily accept it. Some Danish sources believe that a move is inevitable and that the player would seek to stay in England if he felt he had no future on Merseyside.
