Skysports.com understands ambitious Ligue 1 new boys Evian are lining up a move to sign Liverpool's out-of-favour midfielder Christian Poulsen.
The Denmark international joined the Reds on a three-year contract from Juventus 12 months ago and was signed by Roy Hodgson.
However, he has struggled to make an impact under Hodgson's successor Kenny Dalglish and has not been involved so far this season.
A return to former club FC Copenhagen was ruled out earlier in the summer, while Poulsen was also linked with a loan move to Espanyol.
Ahead of Wednesday's transfer deadline, the 31-year-old has now emerged as a target for Evian, who are looking to make a splash in the French top flight this season.
Evian have collected five points from their opening four games, and have signed the likes of Cedric Mongongou and Sidney Govou already this summer.
