Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool are commendably putting up a fight to keep their prized defender, Daniel Agger at Anfield.

Manchester City and Barcelona are very interested in signing the classy Danish centre-half, but Liverpool and Manager Brendan Rodgers do not want to let him leave Liverpool.

Mega-rich City have had informal bids of £15 & £18 million flatly turned down by the Anfield hierarchy.

Having already lost Dirk Kuyt and Maxi Rodriguez and with the talented winger, Craig Bellamy wanting to return to Cardiff, Liverpool will not want to lose a key member of their defence, especially to a Premier League rival.

Some in the media suggest that Agger is stalling in talks over an extension to his contract, which has two years to run, saying the player wants £100,000 a week, up from his current £80,000 a week.

Let us hope that Agger stays at Liverpool, gets an improved contract and continues to put in commanding displays at the back for the Reds this Season and beyond.

And lets buy some quality players ASAP.
