Pompey deny striker interest

Pompey deny striker interest

Harry Redknapp has told The News that reports linking Pompey with Osasuna striker Pierre Webo and Lokomotiv Moscow striker Garry O`Connor are not true.

'It's rubbish. I'm not after either of them.

'It's tough finding strikers - I'm not making too much progress. As I've said before, it's difficult to compete.'

As usual you would not expect Redknapp to admit it even if he were after them. However he did go to Spain to watch a game at the weekend - which has probably brought about the links with Cameroon international Webo - but he is not giving away any information on any players who may have been spotted.

'There were a lot of good players on show. It was a good game to watch, but I don't know if anything will come of it. I just wanted to watch a match.'

One man that continues to be linked with Pompey is Rennes and Nigerian striker John Utaka - but it is firmly believed that Pompey are unlikely to sign any other players taking part in the African Nations - so would this rule out Yakubu for sure then? Nope, he would be the exception to the rule I am sure.

I'm sure Harry will come good for us but we do need at least 2 strikers. Out of those linked that might be interested I'd list Yakubu, Diomansy Kamara, as players who I think would fit in.

Kamara? I'm not sure I would be keen on getting him back in! He couldnt finish at all for us last time round. Great skill with the ball & obviousley he is very afective in the championship, but people are talking about 4 - 5 mil for him! just goes to show Harrys right, the market for a striker has gone nuts!

We're not crawling back to our old players. Yakubu and Kamara won't return.

I agree with CharlieChimes, the prices being banded about for Kamara are comical to say the least. Not only that, I'm not convinced he'd bang in a hatful in the Prem anyway. Yak would cost a few bob, but at least he'd get the goals.....losing him to the African Nations Cup would definitely be a bad point though...

Agreed Tantona JKamara wasnt that prolific for the Baggies either. Having slated O'Conner i thought i had best check him out a bit and it seems he is quite good, so why are we ruling him out. Unless harry has two targets in mind and doesnt want the club deflected

kamara is not the man we are looking for, yak would be a different ball game! i had been unsure for a long while about having him back but we know what we will get from him - goals - and that is what we need... 'arry would not admit it even if o'connor was a target would he russell? we will get the players eventually, we just need to be patient - as always - and see what sasha and 'arry bring us...

IS Roberto Colautti the man we are looking for? BBC gossip are reporting HR's interest in this guy - sounds good on an initial search of the net.

Cookie isn't too hopeful of Wilkinson being fit for the play-offs against Plymouth, which means Pompey are probably unlikely to ever see the Bolton striker in a Blues shirt!
