There has been some talk that Pablo Aimar could move to Pompey this summer, and although most would welcome this it has been viewed as ‘unlikely’…

However these ‘reports’ have been gathering pace over the past couple of days and today some are starting to filter through that former Pompey star Andres D’Alessandro, a countryman of Aimar, has spoken to him about Pompey and could have swayed him in our direction?

D’Alessandro, who despite an all to brief stay with Pompey has become a cult hero on the South Coast. He is also a player that so many of us have always hoped would return – it is almost a traditional transfer window theme for him to be ‘linked’ with such a return in fact. He played a major role in helping us survive in our ‘great escape’ season and in a way, although he would not be personally returning a small part of him would if he has been able to convince Aimar that Pompey is the club for him.

All we can do now is just wait and see what happens, but the word I am getting – and the word I often get, from a reliable source, is not too far wide of the mark as we know – is that there is ‘a real possibility’ this deal could happen following his chat with his countryman…

PLAY UP POMPEY!
