    Portsmouth To Snap Up Javier Saviola From Real Madrid?

    Post by egzonn on Fri Jan 16, 2009 2:08 am

    The Sun reports that Javier Saviola, the Real Madrid forward, could be headed for Portsmouth and the Premier League on-loan until the end of the season.

    The Argentine international has made no impression of any sort with los Blancos, having made just 16 appearances since his free transfer from Barcelona in 2007.

    Now, with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar newly arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu, the chances of Saviola staying put beyond the end of the current campaign look increasingly slim.

    Madrid reportedly offered the 27-year-old to Wigan Athletic in a part player-exchange deal for Luis Antonio Valencia, but nothing ever came of that proposal.

    Everton have been linked with the former River Plate sensation, but now Pompey - now without Jermain Defoe after his return to Tottenham Hotspur - appear to be leading the chase.

    A small, quick, sharp-shooting striker, Saviola could be an ideal partner for Peter Crouch.
