Harry Redknapp has confirmed that he is willing to bring Anelka to Portsmouth as the two clubs get closer to agreeing a deal.
'People have told me I would be mad to sign him, but I like Anelka because he's a real talent,' Redknapp is quoted in The Daily Express.
'I had the same problem when I took Di Canio at West Ham. Everyone said I must be off my head, but he ended up being a legend at West Ham.
'Anelka is on another level. You have to take a few chances in this game and he is well worth the gamble.
'I can't say everyone will agree with me about him, but that is my opinion and I will take the blame if I am wrong.'
Anelka has said that he would give 100% if he joined Portsmouth. Is it possible that Anelka could be Lua Lua`s replacement? I`m receiving news this morning that Lua may join Tottenham in a player plus cash deal (more on that to follow)
