Peter Crouch Becomes Summer Target

Peter Crouch Becomes Summer Target

Rumours are beginning to rumble around the possible summer signing of Portsmouth's 6 foot 7 inch striker, Peter Crouch.

Manchester City legend Peter Barnes spoke about the possible move during this weeks 'City Debate Show' on Channel M, and in his opinion the deal is virtually done.

Crouch, (28) left Liverpool for Portsmouth in July 2008 in a deal estimated to be in the region of £11 million, with £9m being paid up front, however the Pompey owner, Alexandre Gaydamak is open to any offers for the Macclesfield born forward having put the south coast club up for sale.

Others in the hunt are thought to be Newcastle United, so long as they can avoid ­relegation and stay in the top flight.

Surely with the wedge we've got we can afford a far superior striker.

Crouch is (or at least was) a bit of a City fan too. He admitted once on Soccer AM that he used to go with his mum, dad & family to Maine Road as often as possible... It's only a matter of time before he states he'd "walk up the M6" to join us!

I don't think he'll leave us unless he's forced out. He loves it on the south coast..

I have to say I am not a big fan of Crouch ...I would hope we have our sights set a bit higher

I agree 100% Doody. In fact I couldn't have put it better myself.
