With the Football League season all but over, it’s time for teams to start focusing on their summer plans, and for Portsmouth, this transfer window is massive.
With promotion to the Championship missed out on by the slimmest of margins, Kenny Jackett will be looking to add quality to his team that can take Portsmouth back to the second-tier in 2020, but recent reports make for underwhelming reading for Pompey supporters.
According to the Portsmouth News, the club are to revive their interest in Ipswich Town striker Ellis Harrison, who has been an underwhelming figure for the Tractor Boys this season, scoring just once in 17 appearances for the relegated Championship side.
Valued at £675,000 on Transfermarkt, the 25-year-old striker will be a weird and unusual signing for Portsmouth.
Although the club have attempted in the past to sign the attacker, this season has shown the Harrison is a player that should be avoided this summer after such a poor campaign with Ipswich.
One goal all season in over 15 appearances for any striker in any division is a poor record for a professional striker, and heading into next season, Jackett needs attackers who have consistently scored goals throughout their career, and after Harrison’s year with Ipswich, the 25-year-old doesn’t fit the bill.
Portsmouth will be aiming for automatic promotion next season after coming so close this year, but Jackett and co won’t make it far if the club decides to make underwhelming signings, and for Harrison, he fits into such category.
Portsmouth fans, who should the club be targetting this summer? Let us know!
