Football_Casual casts his eye over various Pompey transfer rumours, who is being linked, what they could offer and what they think. Asking what we think.
Well with our takeover nearly complete and only one new signing coming in, Portsmouth still have to bring in more players to be able to compete in the Prem. I’ve looked at the papers today and seen who we are linked with and to be honest I would be happy to buy some of these.
Habib Beye – Newcastle United : A right back which would fill Glen Johnson’s boots but he is another African so would be off to African cup of nations in January. He was one of the best points of Newcastle’s miserable season and I wouldn’t mind him coming. He would be better than Chimbonda and has more experience than Cranie and Marc Wilson and only for £2 million we surely cant go wrong. But if Everton miss out on Kyle Naughton then we could face competition.
Benjani – Manchester City : A fans favourite and a place he would love to come back to. He could fill Peter Crouch’s boots and would put in more of a shift than Crouchy. But he has been hit with injuries the last 18 months. But once again only £2 mill you cant go wrong. We face competition form Hull City who want Benjani on a seasons long loan with a view to a permanent move. But he would pick us over Hull any day surely?
Sam Ricketts – Hull City : A welsh international that can play anywhere across the back four has been linked with us again over the last few weeks. He is available for £2 mill but we face competition from Bolton. I wouldn’t mind him coming in as left back cover for Hermann, he wouldn’t want much in wages and puts a good shift in.
Jerome Rothen – PSG : A French international who can play on either wing. He is a free agent but Rothen has been fined by PSG for criticising the club and now Portsmouth have contacted him to make the Pompey move happen. I certainly wouldn’t say no he has a good delivery and has experience. Face competition from Blackburn.
Modeste M’Bami – Marseille : A centre defensive type midfielder. Has been on trail with us over past couple of weeks and Paul Hart has been impressed by him and offered him a contract but he is mulling over it. Cameroon international and once again off in January.
Gianni Zuvierloon – West Brom : A young Dutch international who I would like see come to Fratton Park. He is quick, good strength good tackler and completely marked Ronaldo out of the game at Old Trafford.
Onismor Bhasera – Kaiser chiefs : A Zimbabwe international and a mate of Benjani. He’s been on trail for 2 weeks and has apparently impressed. He is an attacking wing back who plays on the left.
What do you guys think?? Will these players improve us?? Would you like these in?? Write your comments below please!!
