Juventus midfielder Christian Poulsen has turned down the opportunity to join Fulham on loan, according to the player's agent. The Danish international made 25 league appearances for the Old Lady last summer after arriving from Sevilla. But with Claudio Ranieri having been dethroned in Turin by Cira Ferrara, the 29-year-old - who has featured 64 times for his country - is believed to be available for around £6 million, enabling Juve to fund the signing of Barcelona stopper Martin Caceres. Barcelona, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, West Ham, Portsmouth and Fulham are all reportedly interested in bringing the midfield enforcer to England this summer. However, Poulsen will not be joining the latter, after the player's agent, Joern Bonnesen, revealed a loan offer from Roy Hodgson's Cottagers had been snubbed. "England would be a good option for my client, but obviously it depends on the club and the type of offer," he told Tuttomercatoweb. "I can confirm that Fulham have made an offer, but they wanted the player on loan, while we will only agree to a permanent deal, which is why we have not accepted."
