Liverpool are ready to ditch Christian Poulsen just months after he signed for the club, Goal.com UK can reveal.
The Danish midfielder has failed to impress since his £4.5 million summer move from Juventus and could be on his way out of Anfield as soon as January.
New director of football strategy Damien Comolli does not believe Poulsen has a future at Liverpool and wants to bring in a younger replacement with more potential.
It is believed manager Roy Hodgson would back the sale of the former Sevilla star but only if an upgrade can be brought in as he is concerned by the small size of his squad.

If there was one player who has come to signify the sub standard start to the season at Liverpool then it is Danish international Christian Poulsen. Thankfully for Roy Hodgson and every supporter of the club on Planet Earth, it seems that the manager worked this out a few games ago and according to this source newly appointed Director of Football Strategy, Damien Comolli, wants the former Juventus man to be offloaded sooner rather than later.
It was a purchase that confused many and was confounded by the 30 year old’s very average displays which resulted in the Merseyside club collecting just one win from the five games Poulsen started in, displays that usually involved the mediocre player doing very little and battling vainly to get involved.
It remains to be seen whom exactly would buy Christian Poulsen but the fact that the club appear to have cottoned on to his lack of any worth can only be a good thing for the much improved Anfield club.
