London: Liverpool have rejected an offer from Barcelona for defender Daniel Agger, according to the player`s agent.

Barcelona have been linked with several English Premier League defenders in the off-season, and have submitted a bid of 25 million euros for Chelsea centre-back David Luiz.

Chelsea have made it clear that the Liga champions are wasting their time, and now Agger`s agent, Per Steffensen, has revealed they have been thwarted again.

"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."

The Reds appear determined to keep the Denmark international, who has been made vice-captain at Anfield ahead of the new season.
