Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits it's critical they keep hold of Dan Agger.
The Dane is again being linked with Barcelona in the Catalan press this week.
But Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: "Daniel's a wonderful talent, he's an international captain, he's one of the best left-sided players in the world.
"So it's two experienced players [Agger and Kolo Toure], but it's important that you play together, and they've held us together really well."
