At the tail end of the week Harry Redknapp was saying on the Pompey Site how a new striker would almost complete his squad for this season – and today’s papers are again ‘linking’ us with a £5m move for Real Mallorca striker Daniel Guiza.

During the week we were ‘rumoured’ to be interested in both him and apparent long term transfer target Jonas Gutierrez, with it said we would make a £10m – or thereabouts – double swoop, but this was played down but Mallorca.

It is now being said that Redknapp is prepared to ‘firm up’ his interest by bidding £5m this week.

The Sunday papers are also once again linking us with Peter Crouch though, with a £9m offer being prepared and there is more talk about a move for Milan Baros now that Fred is apparently staying with Lyon.

Clearly money is no option for Pompey – well when it comes to paper talk anyway!

We do need a striker, and in order to get the goalscorer that we are looking for we will have to shell out another £5m – minimum – I would think, but do we have the finances to do this? I would guess that we would find this out in the coming week…
