Pompey move for Baros

Pavel Paska has been a busy man recently, the agent of Patrik Berger - who is said to be returning to Pompey - and two Czech teenagers - who he says are on trial at Pompey - is also the agent of Milan Baros, and he is claiming that an 'official' approach has been made for the former Liverpool striker.

Baros looked like staying at Lyon, but with Fred not leaving afterall he looks likely to move on and Paska has told the Czech Daily Sport that an offer has been made: 'I have already given the official offer of Portsmouth to Lyon's management.

'Their coach Harry Redknapp has an eminent interest in Milan'.

He seems pretty sure that both the Czech stars will be playing at Fratton Park in the not to distant future as he went onto talk about both - particularly Berger - in more detail: 'at Portsmouth he could rejoin with Patrik Berger who should move there from Aston Villa.

'Harry Redknapp was a fan of Patrik Berger in the past. He trusts Czech players - that is why he would like to bet on Milan.

'It is Patrik whom Redknapp would like to see at Portsmouth now in January.

'He runs out of contract at Aston Villa in the summer. I have already discussed it with Villa manager Martin O'Neill and so far he has not been too excited about it. We will continue in talks'.

Agents can often 'tout' their players - sometimes in order to make them 'more appealing' but I think there could be some element of truth in this and would be happy to see both of them arrive - or in Berger's case re-arrive - at Pompey.

My thinking would be that any move for Baros would most likely be a loan deal, but it is also said that Lyon would prefer a straight up cash deal - at the same time it is also said that he does not really fancy a move here? But we have chased him for sometime, and our long-term pursuits often bare fruit.

Baros would be interesting, I remember HR trying to get him on loan when he was at Liverpool.

This seems to be gathering momentum all the time. I would be quite happy with a loan deal.

i think he would be a fantastic signing if we could get him - but im not sure we could afford him and dont think lyon will loan him out either? yep, thats my thinking too matt hence my 'our long-term pursuits often bare fruit'... we'll see what happens here, but so far the noises being made are ok i guess.

Only ten days to go in the deadline and agents have to tout players about to generate income for themselves don't they? But Baros would seem to sort our short term requirements.

Good loan deal. He'd be eager to impress to win a full contract and the boy does have undoubted talent. Just a little lazy at times.

in the right team, with the right players under the right guidance - by that i mean 'arry - i reckon we could see the striker that topped the euro 2004 goalscoring charts... i feel he still has plenty to prove in this country so he would like to return to set the record straight, so why not here...

Im a little unsure about him, I would like to see a loan deal with an option to purchase if he does well. I think he has talent but doesnt always perform. On another note has anyone noticed how many strikers Lyon has, 11 by my count, no wonder they have so many rumors

11 strikers, that is incredible! loan deal for baros would almost certainly be the route we take - i cannot see us buying him outright at this point tbh...

Good loan deal for us, but i reckon it is agent and paper talk again, we still need that wide right player as Lauren was not the man for that position. With United and Chelsea coming up we need to be strong all round and when they attack everyone behind the ball and defending with pace.

Baros is only 26 still! He must have been playing since he was 12 then

He did quite well at Liverpool, are they in the Pemier League, do they play in Europe? did he play in the European Cup Final? come on lads he can do the business if we get him.

i agree with you carpet, bemnji worked hard against derby and i think he is worth perservering with, i think the next striker will be in the kanu type mould a player capable of doing the hold the ball mode

In all Honesty I always felt Baros would be a player harry could do his man management job on and help him achieve his Euro 2004 and Liverpool form-not his Villa form. Mendes pass to benji for No3 was going to DN, and Benjii nipped in. which shows DN's noodle aint as sharp as it needs to be for EPL. He did well against a poor side though, so we need a quality striker to suppliment Benji-who doesnt score every week/month

in fairness to nuge for that goal benji made it clear it was his - if he hadnt i think nuge would have taken it and scored anyway...

Baros - his strike rate is just about 1 in 3 at every club he's played for .. We are not going to do better than that fellas.. bring him on, a loan initially then perm if he does the business... Let not be too picky eh.. otherwise we could end up being disappointed when Harry signs Ronaldo until the end of the season... I can see the comments now " Ronaldo!, would rather have Drogba" lol

Which goal Rug? The third one? David Nugent was way way offside mate and Benji used his initiative to run onto it and take it away from him.

i remember you saying nuge was offside for the 3rd goal before - but he didnt look it to me and im certain the way linesman - sorry referees assistance - are quick to raise their flags he would have... i dont think he was off, but benji wasnt letting anyone have that.
