Andy Johnson will become Harry Redknapps first target this summer. He is expected to cost in the region of 8 million pounds.


Harry has been told he has 10 million to get two strikers.

He can have 8 million to tie up D?Alesandro, Routledge and Koroman.

He can have a further 7 million to spend on defenders.


Harry Redknapp will make an enquiry for Andy some time this summer but I expect this to happen in the next 48 hours. The Crystal Palace chairman is expected to turn down the enquiry. This is however expected and Portsmouth will offer an initial bid in the region of seven million.

Andy Johnson is on standby for this World Cup and although he has just signed a new deal with Crystal Palace, Portsmouth offer him the chance to return that he thought he would get through Palace this year. (They lost 3-0 to Watford)

Make no doubt about it Portsmouth will be going after Andy Johnson, the only thing I?m not sure about is when Portsmouth will make their move.

Your Vital Pompey site will be revealing four more transfer targets in the next week. Keep reading, we don?t make it up!
