Quiet whispers linking Djourou
This one is quite a long shot - and an unneeded log shot at that, as the Times report today that Pompey could make a move to sign Arsenal defender Johan Djourou on loan for the season, with Birmingham also interested.
The 20 year old - Ivory Coast born, Swiss international - is one of the many young starlets that Arsenal have. His quality is obvious, but this quality is not really needed as we are more than covered in defence now with the new arrivals we have seen.
If Djourou had been one of the promising 'young guns' of the attacking variety maybe this would have more legs.
PLAY UP POMPEY!
