LuaLua to Wigan Camara in return?

LuaLua to Wigan Camara in return?

Early rumours emanating today in The Sun are claiming that Pompey could be ready to strike a deal with Wigan involving Lomana LuaLua and Henri Camara.

The thought is Harry Redknapp - a known admirer of Camara - is prepared to offer troubled striker LuaLua in exchange for the Senegalese international, who was thought to be heading back to France earlier in the week!

Wigan are in the market for '3 more new players' and Pompey on the look out for strikers. With the already mentioned fact that Redknapp is a fan of Camara's, such a move might not be as unthinkable as it might sound? Other suggestion is Wigan could want cash as well, I would think that is a big no no.

My own thinking is that although Camara would score more goals, LuaLua is younger and has more of a point to prove, so if he decides to stay and if he gets his attitude right this season he could be a more valuable long term asset to the club.

What is the feeling here then fellas, more silly season speculation or could this be a goer - If so what would you think if it came off?

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Not true. The Sun is about as reliable as a legless tightrope walker.

Like for like really, a sideways move in my opinion. I'd sooner keep Lualua, I think he is by far the better player and I am certain that he'll be back to form this season. I'm also from the "better the devil you know" camp, we know what LL can do on both sides of the coin, Camara can be just the same only he has always made it clear from the start that he only ever wants to play Premiership football - plus he did score against us for the Scum!

Lysimachus, is the sun as reliable as that tho mate :) yep TPB i tend to agree - altho camara is a player i have not been that keen on us signing all the time he has been linked... lualua has something to prove here, if he really wants to he will...

Lets leave well alone and sign a striker who doesn't need 6 chances to score one!!

No way should we swop Lua Lua for Camara, what would be the point ? Lua Lua has not become a bad player overnight and if he can get his head right this season we all know what a good player he really is. Besides he has had bad luck with injuries (some self inflicted !!), and the tragic death of his son. Onc emore get behind him as he is a player who relies on the backing of fans more than most. Next thing is they will offer us Heskey, who said that it could not get any worse.

i see that eastwood is going to wolves for around £1.5m would he not have been worth a gamble? he would not be a starting striker but would give us a very useful option. he would also be hungry to take his chance in the premiership wouldn't he... besides, what is £1.5m for a player that would most likely - even from the bench - score more goals than most our forwards, excluding kanu - scored put together did last season...
