It is claimed that Portsmouth are in talks to land Nigerian star Taye Taiwo.
The Marseille full-back is one of the most highly rated left sided talents in Le Championnat and it seems he is on Harry Redknapp's radar.
Redknapp has already admitted that a left sider was one of his top priorities during the January transfer window and Taiwo could be his main target.
The player's brother has claimed that Taiwo held talks with Pompey last week.
"My brother went to London to discuss his possible move to Portsmouth," Waheed Taiwo told Nigerian Sports.
Taiwo was a target for Spanish giants Valencia last summer, so should Marseille agree to let him leave - Portsmouth are not likely to be the only interested party.
