Daniel Agger's agent has confirmed that Liverpool rejected a bid from Barcelona for the player.
Barcelona have been tracking the player for at least 18 months, monitoring his injury status.
The player's agent, Per Steffensen, said:
“We are aware that Barcelona have made an offer for Daniel that Liverpool have rejected.
“Daniel has a contract with Liverpool for three years and it would be up to the clubs to agree a fee for his transfer in order for that to change.”
The bid was rumoured to be around £15M.
Several media outlets have been insistent that Agger remains open-minded about the possibility of a move.
Brendan Rodgers has publically backed Agger's loyalty in recent days and the Danish defender has been handed the Liverpool vice captaincy, so any transfer would be a significant blow to not just the club but to Brendan himself.
Agger has missed the last two friendly games after suffering a knock late on during Steven Gerrard's testimonial game just over a week ago.
