One more CB on the way to Barcelona, allegedly. Here we go.

According to a report from Diario Sport, FC Barcelona and Liverpool FC center-back Daniel Agger are close to reaching a transfer deal, that could become official in the next couple of days. The 29-year-old Danish defender is a long-time starter for the Reds, and his signing would be the alternative to Cuadrado and Marquinhos, that have become too expensive for the Blaugrana.

Also according to the rumor, Barça would pay Liverpool a fee of €15 million, and Agger would sign a five-year contract with Barcelona. An official announcement could happen as soon as Thursday. Sport claims that the talks have advanced a lot over the weekend.

Liverpool have announced the signing of another center-back, former Southampton Dejan Lovren, on Sunday. Could this be a sign of Agger's departure?
