Fulham are preparing a £1.5million bid for Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen, who has failed to impress during his time at Anfield.

The 31-year-old only joined the Reds 12 months ago after being signed by former manager Roy Hodgson for £4.5million.

The Cottagers boss Martin Jol wants the Denmark international to strengthen his playing squad ahead of a gruelling season in the Europa League, according to Setanta Sports.

Liverpool are keen to offload a number of fringe players, including Poulsen, to enable them to generate more funds to re-enter the transfer market.

Following the arrivals of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing for £45million, manager Kenny Dalglish will need to sell to buy a left-back and a striker.

The Scot is willing to take a loss on Poulsen, to remove him from the wage bill, but will be hoping Fulham will at least double their offer.

Joe Cole and Milan Jovanovic are also midfielders Dalglish wants to leave the club but their high salaries are putting off potential buyers.

Alberto Aquilani is on the verge of joining Fiorentina on-loan for the season, while Paul Konchesky has left Merseyside for Leicester City.
