Pompey face competition for D'Alesandro!
D'Alessandro said: 'I've been playing in Europe for three-and-a-half years, and my time at Pompey has been the best.
'I'm really happy. I want to stay. I like the club both on and off the pitch. I get on really well with the players.
'I don't know what's going to happen. There are other clubs interested, but my choice is to stay here.
'Fundamental to me wanting to stay here is Harry Redknapp. He wants me, and I want to play for him. He was the main reason I came here.
'I'd like Portsmouth to be a side not fighting near the bottom of the Premier League, but in the top half of the table, aiming for a place in Europe.'
In an exclusive interview in The News today, D'Alessandro speaks of his friendship with Maradona and his life before professional football in Buenos Aires – as a plumber.
