Liverpool are reportedly considering selling Daniel Agger as the defender continues to be linked with Manchester City.
City recently failed with two bids for Agger, but reports on Monday suggested the Premier League champions were preparing to launch a third, improved bid worth around £20million (see Related Articles).
And according to Sky Sports, the Merseysiders are considering selling the 27-year-old to raise funds for other signings.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been linked with a number of players in recent weeks, including Swansea's £15m-rated midfielder Joe Allen, Bologna winger Gaston Ramirez, who would cost a similar amount, and Fulham's Clint Dempsey, who could cost around £10m.
And according to the report, Rodgers is already drawing up a list of defensive replacements for Agger should they decide to cash in on the Denmark international.
Barcelona, Napoli, and Real Madrid have also shown interest in Agger in recent weeks.
New Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova is keen on signing a new centre-back this summer and has been forced to look elsewhere after missing out on top target Thiago Silva, who snubbed the Catalans and joined Paris Saint-Germain last month.
Athletic Bilbao midfielder Javi Martinez, who can also play in central defence, is high on Vilanova's shopping list, but a deal appears unlikely as Bilbao are refusing to budge on their £30m asking price.
