Harry Redknapp has admitted an interest to The News in reported transfer targets John Mensah and Peter Crouch.

Ghanaian defender Mensah seems likely to leaves Rennes in the summer and a rumoured destination for some time has been Fratton Park – with the player himself expressing a liking to play for us and Redknapp has admitted an interest, but he also knows others will be interested too: ‘I like him. I’ve watched him quite a bit, but I think there are a few other clubs interested in him.

‘I’ve been watching quite a lot of players for next season.

‘He’s one of those players to look at’.

We are short of central defenders, so if the price is right he would not be a bad signing at all if you ask me. It is not known though if he would be a replacement for Sol Campbell or extra competition – should he sign of course?

As for Crouch it is no secret that Redknapp is a long term admirer of the England man, he has repeatedly said he would welcome him back to the club and if Liverpool do decide to sell then he will be looking to snap him up: ‘there will be plenty of takers for Crouchie if he becomes available.

‘He’s a good player.

‘But I do like him. If Liverpool decided to sell him there would be plenty of clubs in for him’.

As said earlier in the week I do think he will leave Liverpool and would not be at all surprised to see him come back to play for us again.

We will no doubt be linked to plenty of players in the coming months, but at this point in time this pair appear to be heading the shopping list?
