Striker Signings Imminent
Nugent has agreed to join the club and will officially become a Pompey player tomorrow if he passes the formality of a medical. Preston accepted a bid of £6 million for the England striker seemingly ages ago now and the saga is finally coming to an end.
Pompey have also offered upped their offer for John Utaka to £7 million according to reports and it's a fee that Rennes are expected to accept with the Nigerian striker already keen on a move to Fratton Park.
Although Utaka is primarilly a striker, Harry apparently wants him as a winger because of his pace and trickery which would be an asset down the right side of the pitch. A deal for the striker could be wrapped up before our pre-season game with Yeovil on Saturday.
To wrap up, let's take a step back here. Should these deals go through as expected then that's £20 million spent on three players! Pompey spending at least £20 million in the summer... now who would have thought that two seasons ago?
And the mind-blowing thing is that we're probably not even finished yet!
