Harry says he hasn`t spoke to Sol Campbell but Peter Storrie did, at some point over the weekend. Peter apparently went to meet a Chelsea representative and then on to speak to Arsenal`s vice chairmen.
Portsmouth (as revealed by Vital Pompey yesterday) will not make an offer for the English forward unless he is released for free when he returns from the world cup. Even if Arsenal do decide to release him he would have to take a huge wage cut!
‘It’s difficult, he belongs to Arsenal but I like Sol. He would be a leader and would give the club a push forward,’ Redknapp said on Sky Sports News.
‘He’s a player with stature and a terrific understanding of the game. He would be an ideal player for Portsmouth but I don’t know what Arsenal’s plans are for him.
‘I see in the newspapers there is a possibility he may be leaving and if he was to leave he would be a player that would interest us.
‘But we haven’t really gone down that road, we haven’t enquired to Arsenal about him.’
Sol Campbell is no longer a top target, hence why Harry is talking about him. Peter Storrie, Harry Redknapp, Sacha and Milan have agreed not to talk about top targets.
