The interest in Kevin-Prince Boateng is 'said' to have spread yet further over the weekend, with interest at home joining that from abroad.
Lazio and Genoa have been most 'strongly linked' with him although now, after 'rumours' of an interest from West Ham - which has come to nothing - Stoke are, according to weekend 'reports' in The Sunday Mirror, preparing their move.
They are 'lining up a £4m raid' for the 23-year-old and will be 'meeting with Portsmouth representatives this week' in a bid to agree a deal before the 'premier league season kicks-off'.
I have to say that £4m, when you take into account various agent fees etc. that we will no doubt have to pay, is way too low - 'if' this was after all those said fees then whilst it is not that good it could well be something we are forced into accepting?
The problem we have now with him, and any other saleable assets, is the longer we leave it the less we will ultimately get as clubs will know, even more than they do now, that we have to offload these players...
After the world cup that Boateng had we 'should' be able to get at least £6m I would say, although sadly - for reasons we know all too well, combined with those above - the chances are we will do well to even make the fee we paid for him a year ago.
He, like these other saleable assets, is someone I just want to go to the 'highest bidder' and quickly, this is nothing personal against him we just desperately need the money, simply to keep funding the clubs commitments that need paying!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
