Juve are believed to be willing to offload Poulsen as he does not figure in new coach Luigi Del Neri's long-term plans. Anfield boss Roy Hodgson is a big admirer of Poulsen and confirmed his interest in the defensive midfielder earlier this week.

"It won't take more than a week before this is sorted out." Bonnesen told Ekstra Bladet. "It might be already in the beginning of next week. Christian Poulsen is Roy's man. "He will be playing as defensive midfielder at Liverpool. I returned home with a good and positive impression."
