The lure of Pompey to talented youngsters could be about to spread into Europe, with this looking like it will not only be limited to those already based in England as Paris St-Germain youngster Gael N'Lundulu is apparently on his way to the club.
We have managed to pick up many youngsters to add to our academy side throughout the season, with most of them among the 'very highly rated' category. And now according to reports in France at least we are on the verge of beating Arsenal, Citeh and Everton to the signing on 16-year-old forward N'Lundulu, with PSG's head of youth Bertrand Reuzeau explaining to French paper Le Parisien: 'he has turned down our offer of a trainee contract.
'We were not prepared to do more for a young lad who is yet to prove himself. It was a financial choice.'
N'Lundulu was then quoted as saying: 'the offer from Portsmouth was very interesting. If PSG had really wanted to keep me, I would have stayed.'
'If' we complete this signing he will be yet another addition to a fantastic collection of young players Paul Hart and co are working with, all of which makes our future look even brighter.
The day when one of our own comes through - even if they are not exactly 'local' talent - to make his debut is getting closer and closer to a reality again.
Although it is unlikely, it is not impossible that maybe one, or two of these 16 or 17-year-old youngsters might start coming through next season - some involvement in the league cup could be a possibility perhaps?
One senior player that will not be signing for Pompey this summer though will be Mauro Zarate as Peter Storrie has told The News that reports that we were in 'negotiations' with him were 'absolute rubbish.'
PLAY UP POMPEY!
