The list of Chelski players that we are ‘targeting’ has risen yet further with teenage striker Ben Sahar the latest name added to the ‘linked to Pompey’ column…

Successful loan spells with QPR and Wednesday last season have seen the Israeli international’s stock rise and this has brought about a somewhat surprising ‘link’ with us to be honest, with the suggestion being that we would take him on loan for the season with ‘the view to a permanent move’ next summer.

Should this move happen it is also claimed that a counter move could see Dave Nugent make the reported move to Hull either on a permanent £3m basis or perhaps on loan for the season?

The other Chelski players linked over the weekend were of course Shaun Wright-Phillips and then latterly Wayne Bridge, with the suggestion again with him being a season loan move being the order here.

Every now and again talk linking Sulley Muntari with a move away from Pompey comes about, and if this is just ‘recycled news’ or not links are being reported again…

This time – if this is a fresh ‘link’ and not a ‘reused one’ – it is Juventus again that are looking at taking the Ghanaian back to Italy, with the reports claiming that he is viewed as a cheaper alternative to their number one priority Xabi Alonso.

As I have previously said, whilst I do think Muntari ‘might’ be one of those that could be parted with if the price was right I would be surprised if he was not with us again next season – a season when we will see the very best of him on a more consistent basis I feel sure.

PLAY UP POMPEY!
