Pompey join race for Bougherra

Portsmouth are the latest club to join the race for 'Magic' Bougherra who could join the Herminator on Portsea Island. Real Betis bid £1.6m for the central defender last month, but Charlton are asking for £2.5m.

Other clubs in the race for his signature are Middlesbfough, Newcastle, Rangers and Wigan so a departure does look likely. He will be a loss.

What I don't understand in all this is the fee. There appears to be a possee of clubs sniffing around, we bought him for £2.5 million,he now has some, albeit limited Prem experience, more experience generally,the prem is awash with money, so wht do we only want to cover our initial investment. If he wants to go and someone wants him then £3.5 mill should be the bottom line

I agree, but we don't have a good record in that department.
