Daniel Agger’s suitors look to have admitted that taking the Danish defender away from Liverpool is unlikely. The centre back was withdrawn at half time in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Everton yesterday after feeling ill with a stomach problem.

Agger has attracted serious interest from Juventus, with Wolfsburg and Napoli also eyeing a swoop for the Dane. Under previous Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson, Agger was believed to be available this month for between €7-8M, but with the sacking of the former Fulham boss, the chances of signing the player have receded.

Dalglish has preferred to start Agger alongside Martin Skrtel whenever possible and the Scot is not keen on losing the highly rated young defender. And despite the fact that Agger was believed to have grown unhappy over the style of play under Hodgson and a lack of playing time, he is prepared for a fresh start under Dalglish.
