Pompey 'close in' on double striker signings?

Pompey 'close in' on double striker signings?

With pre-season just around the corner and the fact that free agents officially do become free agents this week you would 'expect' the arrivals, which are needed, to come thick and fast in the next week or so...

As said earlier today the free agents that we are 'looking' to sign should, you would think, be confirmed at the end of this week?

Its not just free transfers that it is 'said' we are looking to tie up though.

Having already paid money for Jason Pearce it is strongly 'believed' that Luke Varney will complete a £750,000 move to Pompey from Derby.

He will not be the only striker arriving, according to further reports...

Several media outlets saying that Martin Paterson is 'close' to a move to Fratton too?

24-year-old Paterson, who has been troubled with injuries by all accounts in recent times, knows where the net is at this level and would, fitness proven, make a very good signing.

Although will we, and should we even, pay what The Mirror claims we will?

They say £1.5m...

Patterson should be on a staged available to play payment basis.

Keep him fit and Paterson could be a decent replacement for Nugent. If we change our formation and play 2 up top, these could come a great partnership.

Gotta agree with Tommo. If we are going to have a small squad again we cannoy afford players who are injury prone.

I'm gonna trust the club that all injuries have been assessed and all necessary medicals will focus on past problems.. . I'm also gonna trust the club to get the best deal possible for any players we may sign.. I'm even gonna trust the club to manage the wage budget appropriately .. Basically I'm gonna trust the club !.. Suggest we all start thinking a lot more positvely .. The past is past ..We are in a brave new world .. let's not forget .. but let's move on

If the two signings are true, then its obvious Cotteril does not like the free agent strikers that are availible on are budget.

Would still have taken Earnshaw from Forest but it must be his wages that are a problem.

Just realised above was my first post on this website in a long long time! Im all for trusting the club just not sure if Patterson is worth 1.5m, come to think of it when did we get 1.5m to spend LOL

A win at Wimbledon made sure of a play-offs place. Technically we can finish in the top 3 but this would require an unlikely set of results from too many clubs wouldn't it?
