Liverpool have joined the interest in Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez.
The Chile international, who scored four goals on Sunday at Palermo, is a long-term target for Chelsea and Manchester United.
However, Udine sources say Liverpool are also keen after learning of Udinese’s interest in Christian Poulsen.
The Reds are waiting for a formal approach from the Italians for Poulsen and will take advantage of the new communication line to discuss terms for Sanchez.
The Chile international is currently rated in the £25 million class by Udinese patron Gianpaolo Pozzo
Liverpool are just one of many clubs very keen on landing Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez who has been in incredible form this season, most recently scoring four away at Palermo on the weekend. It appears that the Serie A side are interested in defensive midfielder Christian Poulsen and that that interest could help the Anfield side land the 22 year old Chile international.
30 year old Danish international Poulsen got a lot of bad press during the Roy Hodgson era but the experienced former Juventus man has improved under Kenny Dalglish but is still seemingly a player the club can afford to lose and if in doing so they increase their chances of signing Sanchez then that will greatly interest the Merseyside club.
Poulsen is rated as being worth around £4m so clearly there is still a big financial undertaking needed by Liverpool to sign the Udinese star, perhaps they will accept other failing players? Maybe if they hand Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Paul Konchesky and Philipp Degen as part of the deal then no money would need change hands. We jest.
Sanchez is something of a cult hero at the Stadio Friuli and he is now in his third season in Italy and has improved year on year and has netted 11 goals and provided many assists to help Udinese move into fifth spot only a point away from a dream Champions League spot and one wonders if the club manages to pull off a top four finish, just how keen the former River Plate man will be to leave.
