Are Liverpool a selling club?

With Craig Bellamy looking to be on his way to Cardiff and Liverpool ready to listen to offers for Daniel Agger the fans must wonder if the Reds are now a selling club?

Boss Brendan Rodgers has conceded Liverpool may be forced to sell Agger should Man City match their valuation of the player.

He added that the Liverpool defender is not certain to stay at Anfield for the coming season despite his desire to keep the Denmark defender.

"Every player has a price," Rodgers said. "But no manager wants to lose his best players."

Man City Football administrator Brian Marwood is reported to have made two inquiries about Agger this summer.

Liverpool value the player in excess of the £22m and it has been reported that winger Adam Johnson be part of the deal.

"Top centre-halves are at a premium," Rodgers said, speaking before Thursday's Europa League qualifier against FC Gomel.

"Take Thiago Silva, he left AC Milan to go to Paris St Germain for £40m.  So it has to be a big valuation.

"Daniel is one of the leading players in European football at centre-half. Is he a player I want to lose? No he's not.

"From a football perspective, do I want to lose Daniel Agger? Not really. He can be a really pivotal player for me, he understands how I want to work."
