Free agent Freddie Ljungberg has been 'linked' with Pompey quiet strongly over the past couple of days or so, but on the whole I think the general opinion is 'thanks but no thanks'...
Peter Storrie has moved to silence these rumours that he is signing by telling The News: 'Ljungberg will not be coming, definitely not. We have no interest in him.'
The Swede was a fantastic footballer, but the key word there is 'was'... Arsenal had the right idea when they let him go, and as said before there must be a reason why West Ham coughed up £6m to pay him off...
I will lose no sleep at all over this, and to be honest would have lost much more if we did sign him!
However Thiago Motta remains a player that we 'could' still sign, with Storrie also telling The News: 'Motta is here at the moment and we are having at look at him.
'He's been having medicals to see how he is and we will take it from there.'
The Spanish midfielder is currently undergoing a week long trial with us and played the full 90 minutes of a behind closed doors friendly on Tuesday, along with a couple of other trialist's.
'Reports' suggest that he has already come through a successful medical, but his rumoured £60,000 per week wage demands could be a problem, along with a claimed late interest from our weekend opponents Everton.
And finally, despite the fact that we have no money, we cannot shift players that we would like to and we cannot bring him in on loan the Shaun Wright-Phillips to Pompey talks just will not go away...
We have been after him all summer, but Everton and Citeh seem to have a free run on him due to our lack of finances - and is it believed that he is having a medical with Citeh today. However 'reports' also say that he has decided that it is Pompey he wants to go to if he has to leave Chelski, so he is trying to hold out as long as possible in order to get this move.
Quite how we could manage this I do not know, but for some strange reason I am still getting this feeling we will somehow swoop in to sign him! It does not seem at all feasible but it is something that I somehow feel will still happen?
Share your thoughts below as always please guys...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
