Reports in the media suggest Pompey are to offer £6m for defender Glen Johnson who is currently excelling on a season long loan deal from Chelsea.
If there is any substance to the rumour it would be a welcome addition to the Pompey squad, as not only would it galvanise the teams efforts for Europe, it would at last show a signal of intent in the transfer market, rather than false dawns like the proposed Fernandes signing, which looks like a no-goer.
Other rumours include an offer for Robert Earnshaw of Norwich, but this could be the start of a connection to any in-form striker as the transfer window opens next week.
