Manchester City have been linked with a move for Agger recently as they seek to make their first signing of the season.
While Rodgers has stressed that it will take a substantial sum for Liverpool to part ways with Agger, he insisted that the financial practicality may force the move, citing Thiago Silva's recent move to PSG as an example.
"Thiago Silva has left AC Milan for PSG for £40million," Rodgers told Sky Sports "He (Agger) is one of the leading players in European football, so it is going to be a big valuation.
"There has been contact from City, yes, but it's nowhere near the valuation of what the player is worth and you can only consider something like that if it is going to benefit you.
"Is he a player I want to lose? No. He understands how I want to work and can play a real pivotal part in how I want to play.
"But I am a realist. If someone comes in with a massive bid and it is in the best interests of the club, whether it is Daniel or any other player, you have to look at it.
"The reality is we don't the money that was here.
Rodgers promised that should the player leave, the money received will be used to upgrade the squad and bring the club forward.
"Of course you might lose a top player but if it benefits you going forward - and you can make two or three steps because of it - you may have to consider it," Rodgers added.
"I don't have a bucket-load of money to go and get in a load of players. We have to be strategic."
