Pompey are being 'linked' with strikers all over the shop, so we are taking a look at the ones most 'strongly linked' - or so we are being told most strongly linked - in turn. They are not in a preferential order just alphabetical.
We know pretty much everything there is to know about Yakubu as we should have seen enough of him from his time at Pompey before he left 'for bigger things' with Boro.
Harry Redknapp remains very much a fan of the man he signed from Maccabi Haifa in 2003 and is linked with him all the time.
It is claimed that offers have been made and rejected, then denials made that an approach was even made or received. Talk of deals involving Gary O'Neil and/or Sean Davis as bait have been 'reported', but these too rejected - with Redknapp insisting O'Neil 'will not be sold'.
He was lazy and went off the boil when his time at Pompey was coming to an end last time, but this was as much due to the fact he knew it was. But I think most - including myself - would welcome a return, even though we would lose him for the African Nations.
Yakubu has certainly also improved as a player, but is there enough of an improvement to warrant a £14million fee?
My thinking - and most others - is we will see Yakubu back as a Pompey player at some point during the summer, so my thinking is this is an almost certain 5 out of 5 rating that Yakubu will be one name we sign.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
