Rafa Benitez is facing an injury crisis at Inter and looks to his old Liverpool protégé Daniel Agger.
The Nerazzurri have lost Walter Samuel for the rest of the season after he underwent surgery for knee ligament damage yesterday.
Reinforcements are needed in the January transfer window and according to The Mirror it will involve a Premier League swoop.
Former Liverpool manager Benitez is thought to be planning a mid-season move for 25-year-old Agger.
It was the Spaniard who signed him from Brondby for £5.8m in January 2006.
However, President Massimo Moratti could put the brakes on amid fears Agger is also a risky prospect.
The Denmark international is struggling with a persistent calf injury and the date of his return at Anfield is unknown.
