Skysports.com understand that Andres D'Alessandro is being lined up for a return to the Premier League.
The Argentine international spent the latter part of the 2005/06 season on loan at Portsmouth and impressed hugely.
After his successful stint with Pompey, D'Alessandro opted against a permanent move to Fratton Park - instead choosing a loan switch to Spain with Real Zaragoza.
He once again impressed during his temporary stay with Zaragoza and they made his move from Wolfsburg permanent this summer.
However, recent weeks have seen D'Alessandro fall-out with team-mate and compatriot Pablo Aimar and coach Victor Fernandez.
D'Alessandro has been welcomed back into the first-team after making a public apology but his long-term future at La Romareda is far from certain.
D'Alessandro's falling out has alerted his former employers Portsmouth, who are regarded as front-runners to secure his signature.
However, skysports.com has learnt that up to half-a-dozen Premier League clubs are interested in taking on the 26-year-old, who has proved before he is capable of handling the physical nature of English football.
