Liverpool have not made contact with Juventus midfielder Christian Poulsen, according to his agent.

Poulsen, 30, is thought to be surplus to requirements at Juve and Roy Hodgson is rumoured to be weighing up a bid for the Denmark international as a potential replacement for Javier Mascherano.

However, agent Joern Bonnesen denied a transfer was in place at the weekend and has again played down the talk his client is set for Anfield.

"I have read these rumours, but I don't want to comment on them," he told "I have not heard from anyone from Liverpool. Juventus have not called me and I have not found it necessary to call them."
