Christian Poulsen joins Liverpool for £4.5m

Liverpool have completed the signing of Denmark midfielder Christian Poulsen from Juventus on a three-year deal for a fee of £4.5m.

The Italian club announced the news on its website this afternoon: ‘Juventus announces that an agreement has been finalised with Liverpool for the disposal of the registration rights of the player Christian Poulsen for a consideration of €5.475m to be paid in two instalments.’

The 30-year-old, who joins fellow new signings Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Jonjo Shelvey and Danny Wilson at Anfield, previously worked with Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson at FC Copenhagen back in 2000.

Poulsen’s arrival means that Argentina captain Javier Mascherano looks set to leave Anfield with Inter Milan and Barcelona both reported to be interested in signing the 26-year-old.
