Sidney Govou has invited Portsmouth to make a summer move for his services.
The Lyon striker scored the winning goal in the French Cup final at the weekend, with Harry Redknapp in the stands to run the rule over the French international.
Govou has made it clear that he intends to leave Stade Gerland over the close season, with England seemingly his preferred destination.
It is thought that a bid of around £7million would be enough to lure the 28-year-old to the Premier League, a figure unlikely to hinder Redknapp's recruitment plans.
A number of other English clubs, as well as Primera Division outfit Atletico Madrid, are believed to be interested in Govou, but the player's agent has admitted that the current FA Cup holders are the most appealing option.
"Sidney wants to come to England and is interested in Portsmouth," Frederic Guerra told The News.
"He is at an age where he wants to move. He has made that decision.
"But at the moment I don't know if that is possible.
"I have heard that Harry Redknapp may be interested.
"But Harry has not contacted me and nor has anyone from Portsmouth so far."
Pompey have established a good relationship with Lyon after taking Milan Baros on loan in January and could be set to raid the French champions once again over the summer.
Baros has failed to score a single goal during his time at Fratton Park, while fellow forward David Nugent has also disappointed since moving to the South Coast.
Redknapp is well aware that he must find an able partner for Jermain Defoe in the coming weeks if the club are to build on their successful 2007/08 campaign.
Peter Crouch continues to be linked with a return to Pompey, while Paris St Germain hit-man Amara Diane is believed to be another drawing admiring glances.
