Juventus and Inter have joined AC Milan in their battle for Liverpool defender Dan Agger.

The Daily Mail says reports that influential Milan officials hosted a lunch in the city for Agger's agent Per Steffensen has alerted other Serie A sides to the 24-year old's likely availability, and Inter and Juventus have now expressed an interest.

With Agger's Anfield contract having just over a year to run, Juventus boss Claudio Ranieri and Inter's Jose Mourinho sense an opportunity to sign a top central defender on the cheap.
