Portsmouth: Alex Cochrane appears on Kenny Jackett’s summer wish list -Portsmouth Transfer Rumours

Portsmouth manager Kenny Jackett is keen on making a summer move for Brighton and Hove Albion defender Alex Cochrane, according to Portsmouth News.

With the 2019/20 season now over, ending in disappointment for Pompey having lost to Oxford United in the League One play-off semi-finals, focus is now turning to the new season as Jackett looks to take them into the Championship next year.

Whilst a number of player exits have already happened, including Christian Burgess leaving for Belgian side Union SG, the summer transfer window could provide the Portsmouth boss with an opportunity to bolster his squad options.

England under-20 international Cochrane made 16 appearances for Brighton’s under-23 side in Premier League 2 and it is now being reported that he has been offered the chance to go out on loan to Fratton Park.

Such a move would hand Jackett another option in either defence or midfield ahead of next season, with Cameron McGeehan set to return to Barnsley following his loan deal at Fratton Park.

Cochrane’s deal appears to be the route that Jackett will have to go down this summer in terms of it being a potential loan, after chief executive officer Mark Catlin recently spoke out against the English Football League’s plan to introduce a salary cap.

If Jackett has to bring in loan players this summer, he seems to be going down the correct route in showing interest in a player like Cochrane.

In Premier League 2, there is a number of young players who could easily be playing in League One or even the Championship, and this could be the summer that clubs in the EFL make similar deals to the proposed one of Cochrane to Fratton Park.
