Daniel Agger's agent has revealed Liverpool have rejected a bid of £14.6million from Barcelona for the Denmark international.

The Blaugrana have made no bones about their need for a centre-back to replace to aging Carles Puyol, and have been strongly linked with the former Brondby man as well as Chelsea' David Luiz this off-season.

The 28-year-old was recently appointed as the Reds' vice-captain following Pepe Reina's loan move to Napoli, and manager Brendan Rodgers has said Agger's commitment to the Merseyside club is unwavering.

However, the Dane's representative, Per Steffenson, has intimated his client may be open to a move to the Nou Camp should the two clubs settle on a fee.

"We are aware that Barcelona have made an offer for Daniel that Liverpool have rejected," he told reporters.

"Daniel has a contract with Liverpool for the next three years and it would be up to the clubs to agree a fee for his transfer in order for that to change."
