Dane warns against dangers of standing still in close-season transfer market.
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has urged the club’s American owners to invest heavily in new recruits this summer if the Reds are to push on and challenge for a place in the top four of the Premier League next season, says the Daily Mirror.
The Merseyside giants are on course for a disappointing seventh-place finish in the top flight this campaign, which is one spot higher than they managed under previous manager Kenny Dalglish this time last year.
However, Liverpool have failed to make much impression at all in any of the three cup competitions that they have taken part in this season, unlike in the last campaign when the club reached the finals of both the Carling Cup and the FA Cup.
And now the Denmark international, who has been at Anfield for seven years after arriving from Bronby for just £6 million, wants the Fenway Sports Group to back new head coach Brendan Rodgers financially when the transfer window opens.
“I think we have played some really good football this season, but we haven’t been consistent enough. We have to admit that,” said Agger.
“Seventh in the league is far from where we want to be. We need to change something.
“It’s difficult to say how much strengthening the squad needs. But we need to get some more quality in to help us move forward. What we need next season is consistency.”
