'Target' after dream move to England

'Target' after dream move to England

Maccabi Haifa striker Roberto Colautti - one of many strikers linked with Pompey - has reportedly told the News of the World it would be 'a dream' to play in England.

'It would be a dream to play in the Premier League.

'But it depends on my club as I have a contract with them until 2009.'

All players say such things when they are looking for a move - and whether or not Pompey are even interested in Colautti, only the club knows - but he certainly seems to know where the goal is.

Colautti was born in Argentina, starting his career with the famous Argentine side the great Maradona played for, Boca Juniors, before transferring to Maccabi Haifa - the former club of a certain ex Pompey striker Yakubu, also reported to be ready to return - where he has scored an impressive 32 goals in 58 games. By marrying his Israeli girlfriend he gained citizenship, with him now an Israeli international.

At 25 Colautti still has time very much on his side and certainly has an impressive record, but he is just one of a number of 'reported' striking targets including the already mentioned Yakubu, Giampaolo Pazzini and Fredi Kanoute - all in the last 24 hours or so alone.

Links can become tiresome during 'silly season,' with many of them having absolutely no truth behind them at all - so links with Colautti could be just that - but If we get 'linked' with enough we will eventually sign at least one, you would think - or at least hope.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I've got a good feeling about Roberto Coloutti. I really like this guy and would want Pompey to sign him. Not as our one signing but along with Yakubu maybe. That would give us plenty of options with different types of strikers and I could stop worrying and settle down and wait for August to arrive whilst renewing my passport, of course.

noep tend to agree with you chaps, the other issue is the people that own Haifa do not get on at all well with the Gaydamaks but strange things have happened. I supposse the other thing is that the Israeli league has a habit of turning out quality players and famuily rivalry is one thing but business is business.

Little to add to what has already been said, this one is a longshot & probably the least attractive deal.

The price for Coloutti has been quoted at 1.5 million but you know papers - pluck it out of the air usually. Good value and worth a risk at that price, I reckon.

Time to take a risk: he seems to come in a similar mould to yakubu, who we all know has done well :), and for 1.5 million, thats cheap for a striker with a better than 1/2 goal ratio - wherever they play!

Worryingly, didn't our boy Collins M have a similar ratio?

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
