One of the latest rumoured transfer targets for Pompey is once again Juan Pablo Sorin, having been briefly linked with a move to Fratton before the World Cup.

The 30-year-old, national captain with over 70 International caps to his name was a member of the highly fancied, yet ultimately unsuccessful Argentine side and played in all of his nations games in Germany.

A very attacking left back, who can also play in central defence has experience of not only obviously Argentine football, but also Brazilian, Italian with Juventus and Lazio, French with Paris Saint Germain and
Spanish football with Barcelona and current employers Villarrael, so would prove a very worthwhile and vastly experienced signing. Sorin is said to be keen on a move to England for a fee in the region of £2m, although Pompey are unlikely to be the only club interested. His wages could also
again prove a stumbling block?

Another new name being linked is Fiorentina’s 28-year-old, Czech International central defender Tomas Ujfalusi.
