Danish ace on Hodgson's radar

Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has admitted he is interested in signing Juventus' Danish midfielder Christian Poulsen. The Reds have been strongly linked with a move for Poulsen as they consider replacements for wantaway midfielder Javier Mascherano. Juventus are thought to be willing to let Poulsen move on as he is currently down the pecking order in new coach Luigi Del Neri's plans. Hodgson is a big fan of Poulsen having worked with him during his time in charge of FC Copenhagen and he feels he would be a valuable addition to his squad at Anfield. "If we can sign him from Juventus at a price I consider reasonable, he will be a very good player to bring into our team," Hodgson told Ekstra Bladet. "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."
