Reported Portsmouth transfer target (along with most other players) Juan Pablo Sorin is a wanted man.

Bolton Wanderers are said to have tabled a bid of around £2.5m, which is what current club, Spanish giants Villarreal are believed to be willing to accept. However Harry Redknapp will not be beaten without putting up a fight, and is very keen on bringing the 30-year-old Argentinean
International skipper to the South Coast, and made the following comments in Monday’s Sun,

‘I tried to sign him three years ago. He’s a great player, one of the best players at the World Cup.’

‘We are desperately short of left-sided players, so we are going to make a bid for Sorin.’

Most supporters will remain very sceptical about such a move coming off, and whether or not he would even be interested in a move to the club remains to be seen. With Tottenham, Stuttgart and Inter Milan also
rumoured to be in the hunt the club faces stiff competition, but if he is a man Redknapp wants he’ll have a good go at getting him.
