Christian Poulsen hopes to form a partnership with Charlie Adam at the heart of Liverpool's midfield.
The pair will come face-to-face on Wednesday evening as Scotland host Denmark at Hampden Park in a friendly game.
Adam and Danny Wilson make up the Liverpool contingent in the Scotland squad, while Daniel Agger and Poulsen will line up for the Danes.
However, with the start of the Premier League season just days away, the former Sevilla midfielder has one eye on the new campaign.
An injury to Steven Gerrard has created a vacancy at the heart of the team, while Luis Suarez's exploits for Uruguay this summer means his start to the season may be delayed.
Rather than lamenting the loss of their two marquee players, the Dane is confident he and Adam can assuage their absence.
"Charlie was a key player for Blackpool and I think he will be a good player for Liverpool as well," Poulsen told the Daily Record.
"He's a good passer and can find the attacking players. We have a good dressing room at Anfield and he has fitted straight in as we have a lot of Scots at the club.
"Of course, the pressure is different at Liverpool compared to Blackpool but he has the qualities and we've seen in training that he's a good, strong player.
"Our captain is injured for the early part of the season so I'm not sure if Charlie or Luis Suarez will take our free-kicks but his left foot is a strong weapon for us.
"He's a really strong player and it's extra competition for myself but that's the same at every big club in the Premiership."
He added: "Of course, I hope I get a few opportunities myself. Charlie and I can play together. Why not? It doesn't have to be one or the other.
"Myself and Daniel Agger will drive up for the game but the journey back will be interesting because Charlie and Danny are coming with us!"
