Daniel Agger is a transfer target of Barcelona as the Catalan team tried to lure him from Liverpool in the past summer but the Premier League side managed to keep him in the club although questions are being raised on how long he will remain with Liverpool as not only Barcelona but also Napoli are interested in securing his services.

"I'm not saying I wasn't tempted, because anyone would be in that situation, but for the club to say that to me was enough. I am happy here and my family is happy here also and that's a good combination." That was the statement from Agger as he remained with Liverpool in summer.

It is believed that Rafael Benitez is going to attempt bringing Agger to Napoli in January as the team is willing to pay him £3.5 million per season.

Agger has made 8 appearances for Liverpool this season as he has had tough competition against the likes of: Martin Skrtel, Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure as all the players are challenging him for his spot in the starting XI.

Tata Martino and Rafael Benitez both want to take advantage of his current situation in Liverpool as his lack of matches can be a motivation for him to make a switch to a new club and Napoli alongside Barcelona will surely be leading the charge to sign him in January.

In 13 games this season, Liverpool has conceded just four in six of the games that Daniel Agger has started, and 12 in the seven that he hasn't. This is a huge sign that the 28 years old Danish defender makes a big impact and influence for his club as they seem to defend better whenever he plays.
