Diarra and Kranjcar out/Crouch and Nobby in
Lassana Diarra and Niko Kranjcar were once again 'linked' with moves away from Pompey over the weekend - nothing new there then!
Citeh are the team that have apparently joined the race for Diarra, with an £8m offer being prepared. The only possible reason that I could see this happening - as this would without any doubt not be a forward step football wise - is if the fella is more interested in bumping up his wages than anything else?
He will not be going to Citeh though, I am sure of it...
Roma are the team this time being 'linked' with Kranjcar.
This is the type of club that you could see him leaving for, but I would again doubt this will happen as I am certain that he will be starting the season with Pompey - maybe as a European Championship winner as well as an FA cup winner...
Those being linked with moves into Fratton are both names that are well known to Pompey and the 'linked to' columns.
Of course the Peter Crouch talk has been rumbling on pretty much day in day out for the past few weeks, months even but it is claimed that a deal will finally be arranged for him to sign either this, or next week for around £8m?
Nolberto Solano has been linked with Pompey several times in the past, and with the 33 year old now a free agent after he was released by West Ham the suggestion is that Harry Redknapp wants to give him one last crack in the top flight...
The fella is past his best, but as a free agent and as a squad player he would be worth a crack wouldn't he?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
