Liverpool’s Crouch move to Portsmouth almost a done deal?

According to the Daily Mirror, Portsmouth manager Harry Redknapp expects to complete an £8 million move for Liverpool striker Peter Crouch within the next 48 hours.

Harry Redknapp has publicly expressed his desire to sign the striker before, but reports suggested that the initial £15 million price tag had deterred any potential buyers.However, it now seems that Liverpool have finally given in and reduced the asking price, which the Daily Mirror claims will be around the £8 million mark, as well as wages worth around £60,000-a-week.

Crouch, 27, has played for Portsmouth before back in 2001/2002 before he signed for Aston Villa in a £5 million move. The 6 foot 7 inch striker now seems set to make the move back to Fratton Park where he arguably enjoyed his best form in his career, scoring 18 goals in 37 games.

Redknapp’s said last week about the move: “Crouchy is a brilliant lad and I do like him a great deal. I suppose if Peter Storrie was negotiating with Liverpool though, he wouldn’t want me throwing figures around.

“We might feel Liverpool want a little too much for him even at £10million. We might want to pay a bit less, so it wouldn’t be right for me to say a price.”

The Liverpool fans loved the bones of Crouchie, stood by him when he didn’t score for 19 games. But when he says he is going to see out the last year of his contract and leave on a Bosman knowing the problems the club has with the yanks, well that hurts nobody is bigger than the club, he was on a good wage, it’s not going to improve his England chances by moving so good riddance.
