Arsenal are reportedly ready to offer Liverpool defender Daniel Agger a way out from his Anfield side this January according to the Telegraph.

The 28 year old has admitted he is considering leaving Liverpool if he fails to regain his spot in the club’s starting eleven.

Agger has started just four of Liverpool’s nine Premier League fixtures as Brendan Rodgers opts to use Martin Skrtel alongside summer signings Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure in a three man defence.

Commenting on the issue Agger stated: “If I don’t play, and if the manager doesn’t think I am good enough, that could make me leave Liverpool.

“I’m here to play football, nothing else. So if I don’t play football, then I don’t want to be here anymore.”

Agger moved to Liverpool in a £6m switch from Brondby back in 2006 and is a crowd favourite but interest from table toppers Arsenal could perhaps tempt the tough tackler into considering a move to North London.

One would have to wonder why Arsene Wenger would be targeting Agger given that as well as having Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny as a very able first choice central defensive pairing he also has former Gunners skipper Thomas Vermaelen waiting for his chance to force his way back into the first team set-up.
