Liverpool have completed the signing of Juventus midfielder Christian Poulsen for £5.5 million.
Having already undergone a medical and a fee already having been agreed with the Italian club, all that remained was for Liverpool and the Danish international to agree personal terms.
These issues have now been resolved and Poulsen will be unveiled at a news conference tomorrow at Anfield.
The combative midfielder is seen by Roy Hodgson as the ideal replacement for want-away Mascherano.
“Christian is a player I know well, a player whose career I actually kick-started many years ago and I have followed him closely ever since.”
Roy Hodgson helped to develop Christian Poulsen when at FC Copenhagen, and the pair won the Danish league title in 2001 together. Poulsen left a year after Hodgson departed to manage Udinese, and became a mainstay in the midfield of Schalke 04. In 2006 he moved to Sevilla and won the UEFA Cup and Super Cup.
Right, thats the midfield sorted, now we really do need another striker as Nando can’t do it all on his own and Ngog is still learning his trade.
Keep up the good work Roy.
