Portsmouth Wants Argentine Midfielder Fernando Belluschi


Portsmouth are launching a £7million bid for Olympiacos’s Argentina midfielder Fernando Belluschi.

Local newspapers have reported that an offer has been put in with the Greek giants by super-agent Pini Zahavi, who looks after the player and is also close to Pompey’s prospective buyer Sulaiman Al-Fahim.

However, there will be some interest in the background to the transfer as Olympiacos only own 50 per cent of the 26-year old international and there could be third-party issues to interest the Premier League.

There are also claims that Portugal side FC Porto has signed the player on the 5th of July 2009 for a fee believed to be around the region of 9 million euros.

Belluschi’s best position is as an attacking midfielder, or playing just behind the forwards as a link between midfield and attack although his playing attributes are suited to a more wide position.
