New Villa boss Lambert keen to sign Denmark defender Poulsen
Aston Villa are interested in AZ Alkmaar’s Denmark defender Simon Poulsen.
The 27-year-old left back is wanted by Ajax as a replacement for Newcastle United-bound Vurnon Anita.
Ironically, Anita, 23, was also coveted by Paul Lambert while he was still manager at Norwich City.

There will surely be a new found optimism among Aston Villa fans now that Alex McLeish has been replace by Paul Lambert but clearly his ability to succeed depends a great deal on whether the former Norwich City boss has the funds to improve on a woefully average squad.
A move for AZ defender Simon Poulsen wouldn’t break the bank and and the Danish international is the type of performer who would certainly add strength to Lambert’s starting options. Last term Stephen Warnock was most often used as left-back.
27 year old Poulsen has been at AZ for four and a half years and may well be very tempted by a move to the Midlands club this summer.
