D'Alessandro sways Aimar Pompey way?

D'Alessandro sways Aimar Pompey way?

There has been some talk that Pablo Aimar could move to Pompey this summer, and although most would welcome this it has been viewed as 'unlikely'...

However these 'reports' have been gathering pace over the past couple of days and today some are starting to filter through that former Pompey star Andres D'Alessandro, a countryman of Aimar, has spoken to him about Pompey and could have swayed him in our direction?

D'Alessandro, who despite an all to brief stay with Pompey has become a cult hero on the South Coast. He is also a player that so many of us have always hoped would return - it is almost a traditional transfer window theme for him to be 'linked' with such a return in fact. He played a major role in helping us survive in our 'great escape' season and in a way, although he would not be personally returning a small part of him would if he has been able to convince Aimar that Pompey is the club for him.

All we can do now is just wait and see what happens, but the word I am getting - and the word I often get, from a reliable source, is not too far wide of the mark as we know - is that there is 'a real possibility' this deal could happen following his chat with his countryman...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Could he be a replacement for Muntari who the papers have linked away from Pompey again?

Bah, we get the Muntari to Juve links every window now! Muntari himself had the chance to move to Juve when he chose us, that speaks volumes for me....besides, he wants to sign for Man U doesn't he? Obviously heard of Aimar, no idea how good he is though. D'Allesandro instead please?

All a little strange. I think I will be happy when all the transfers are done and we can just concentrate on the football.

Must convince total ignorance about Aimar, but if he's anything like D'Allessandro he'd be worth having.

The latest rumour that concerns me is Krunchie to Arsenal. It seems they might be prepared to offer £15M and I can't see him not going if that happens. It seems he's Wenger's second choice if he can't get Barry - fingers crossed he does get Barry then.

The Nico and The Ar*e rumour may be why we are linked with Jeremy Menez. Would love Aimar but D'Allesandro is one of my all time favourites.

He wont Barry has made it abundantly clear he want to go to liverpool, it would put some sense to the playmaker aimar rumour. This rumour has been circulating in france and spain for some days so i do think the club have made those "unofficial enquiries"

there are also reports that we have enquired about Govou, the french swp. This would also make sense

just speculating... but lose Muntari and Niko but gain Menez and Aimar.. Yep I'd settle for that .. Now sit back and watch as the flood gates open on the very thought that I could agree to let darling Niko leave Pompey

Done Deal - Smith in permanently from Swindon

The interest Pompey retained in Smith, with him 'in our sights' has resulted in him returning to the Blues on a permanent basis after signing for an 'undisclosed fee' from Swindon.

Cushioning the blow

Much, that needed saying, about Webster's exit for Ipswich and the arrival of Clarke in return (and cash) has been said hasn't it? Doyle's been spot on with what he said.

Swindon striker in 'Pompey's sights'

Michel Smith, who was of course on loan last season, could return? He's still in 'Pompey's sights' by all accounts after Swindon informed him he's 'surplus to requirements' now.
