Fulham manager Martin Jol has reportedly made a 'cheeky' £1.5million bid for Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen according to

The 31-year-old Danish international has been earmarked by the Cottagers as a player who could strengthen their playing squad ahead of what will be a gruelling campaign due to their early Europa League qualification commitments.

Poulsen has endured a torrid time at Anfield since his £4.5million move from Juventus last summer, making only 21 appearances for the Reds in his debut campaign and would welcome the chance of a fresh start at Fulham.

With current Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish having strengthened his central midfield options considerably over the summer, with the additions of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam, Poulsen's future on Merseyside looks increasingly bleak.


The Reds are keen to alleviate some of the pressure on the club's ever-increasing wage bill, and are keen to offload as many players as possible who have been deemed surplus to requirements by the Liverpool coaching staff ahead of the new season.

A move to Fulham would appear to be a good fit for Poulsen, with the opportunity for European football still available to him - though it remains unclear whether he will be willing to take the inevitable drop in wages to fit in with the strategic structure implemented at Craven Cottage by club owner Mohamed Al-Fayed.
