Liverpool Transfer Rumours: Christian Poulsen's Inevitable Exit Marks Transition
If you needed anymore proof that Liverpool is under new ownership this season, Christian Poulsen's contact with French club Evian is that proof.
Poulsen, who was brought to Liverpool in the summer of 2010 by former boss Roy Hodgson, never won over manager Kenny Dalglish, and after numerous signings this season, new owner Fenway Sports Group appears ready to let him go.
Poulsen, 31, could follow Alberto Aquilani and Emiliano Insua out the door after big money was thrown at new acquisitions Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson, Jose Enrique and Alexander Doni this summer.
And after a 2-0-1 start to the Premier League this season that has seen Liverpool in third place, a new direction has appeared to be beneficial for the Reds.
Adam was the latest addition to make an impact for Liverpool against Bolton on Saturday, scoring a goal in the team's impressive 3-1 victory. Given he was one of the squad's controversial signings this offseason, FSG and Dalglish couldn't be happier at the moment.
The truth is that Poulsen isn't needed. In fact, he appears set to be the victim of the trend in Anfield: out with the old, in with the new.
Given the way the Reds appear to have rebounded, in competition with favorites Manchester United, it's hard to question anything the new ownership has done this transfer window. Unless they all of a sudden go on a losing streak, this could be the best thing that's ever happened to Liverpool.
In the end, fans could be thanking Fenway Sports Group.
