Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists that there have been no offers for Liverpool defender Daniel Agger.
The Dane sat out the 4-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund with a knee problem, and has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Anfield.
According to numerous reports Agger has asked Rodgers if he can leave the club this summer with concerns he won’t get first team football.
But Rodgers said: “I saw some stories on Agger, but we haven’t had any enquiries. Daniel is still getting some work done on his knee. He’s been unfortunate since the tour of America, but we haven’t had anything, no offers.”
Brendan Rodgers has also revealed that new 20million signing Lazar Markovic could be fit for Liverpool’s opening fixture against Southampton this Sunday.
He said: “Hopefully, Lazar will be available. If not for Sunday, certainly for the next week. He’s had a slight problem with his tendon, but he’s up to speed, working with the sports science team and looking very strong. And if he just misses out next week, he’ll certainly be available for the next game.”
With the transfer of Adam Lallana close to completion, Liverpool are lining up further signings, Belgium starlet Divock Origi and Benfica winger Markovic.
Origi is 19-years-old and he has drawn interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool, but Liverpool look to wrap up the 6million deal by offering to loan him back to Lille for next season.
Liverpool have watched Origi all season and the Belgium has drawn rave reviews after his performances for Belgium in the World Cup.
Origi seems keen on a Premier League, having admitted it his dream to play in the Premeir League.
As a little boy I always dreamed of playing in the Premier League,’ said Origi, as reported by the Express.
‘But I’m still young and now I’m in an important tournament so I’m trying to focus on the team. Then my entourage will see with Lille what I will do.’
Liverpool are also interested in Benfica’s winger Lazar Markovic, rated at 25million by the Portuguese side.
Markovic is just 20-years-old and is known for his blistering speed and an eye for goal, and the 20-year-old will give Rodgers lots of options next season as they look to challenge for the Premier League title.
With Liverpool seemingly completed the transfer of Adam Lallana, the Merseyside club are moving onto new targets quickly.
Liverpool also hold a strong interest on Barcelona attacker Alexis Sanchez, who could be part of any potential Suarez deal. As well as Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri, who recently scored a hat trick for Switzerland at the World Cup.
