With just a few weeks left until the end of the transfer window we are now coming to the business end of the summer market.
Barcelona were one of the first clubs out of the blocks, in terms of big summer transfers, and they will be absolutely delighted with the purchase of Luis Suarez.
But their business seemingly isn’t finished yet. They may still pursue an interest in speed demon Juan Cuadrado as well as buying in another defender for that slightly dodgy back line.
Gerard Pique will surely have a better season and Mathieu has come in but that hasn’t stopped the press speculating intensely about the purchase of another defender. Jerome Boateng, Daley Blind, Mats Hummels and Thomas Vermaelan have all been mentioned in relation to the club.
And the latest name to come out of the transfer hat is Liverpool stopper Daniel Agger. English media outlet The Daily Mail reports:
Daniel Agger puts Barcelona on alert after ‘asking’ Brendan Rodgers to leave Liverpool
Like Vermaelen we could easily imagine the player doing a good job at Barca because he is technically adept. As well as providing solidity in the back line he also loves to get forward and score goals – he has a really decent shot on him from distance and two good feet.
English bookmaker SkyBet thinks that this one could happen and they now have Barcelona as odds on favourites to sign the player, if he does leave his club this summer, at odds of 2/5.
Let’s take a look at the 64 cap Danish international in action. Barca fans: would this guy be a good option for the defence?
