Amid all the 'latest' takeover talk we have overlooked the words from Aruna Dindane who, when speaking to sky sports, said he wants to join Pompey, well at least come to the premier league - wanting to join Pompey just happens to be as we want him...
The striker has previously been 'linked' with Pompey, and other premier league sides, but we appear to be in pole position and he would rather come to us than stay in France to join Monaco from Lens.
Assuming we can stump up the cash some think that we 'might' sign him in time for Arsenal at the weekend? He certainly wants the move: 'I want to play in the Premier League. My club want me to go to Monaco. For me, it's the Premier League or nothing.
'I'm 28 years old and it is my chance to go and play in the best league with full stadiums, not empty stadiums.
'They need to agree a fee with a Premier League club who has shown me they want me.'
Lets just hope those 3,000 or so that did not turn up for Fulham - although less I guess as some of those were following fans that did not arrive - as he will not be playing in front of a full house at Fratton if they do not...
That said with something 'big brewing' methinks that people may well start to find the interest again!
It is simple really, Dindane wants the move, we want him so lets just hope we will be in a position - ASAP - to be able to bring in some much needed extra firepower!
On the subject of bringing people in Modeste M'Bami is another name that is again being 'heavily linked' when it looked like he might have got away...
After spending 3-weeks with us during pre-season we had to release him with it thought we could not afford his wages, but it is also being said that he is another who 'might' also arrive by the end of the week?
PLAY UP POMPEY!
