Portsmouth are ready to make a new bid for Alexei Smertin.

The Russian spent a highly successful spell on loan at Fratton Park last season.

He then returned to Chelsea for his first campaign at Stamford Bridge and has done well in a variety of positions.

Pompey are now ready to try and tempt Chelsea to sell them the 29-year-old.

I guess he is surplas to requirements and Chelsea are going after more players in the summer. So i don't see why he won't be allowed to leave..

do we know why smertin went back in the first place? lol. but yip, i cant see any reason why not, hes been there and liked it. and i dont think chelsea wil want much money, and again, it could be a loan deal

He played alot of games at the start of the season, I think he is a decent pro. Would obviously be a star at Pompey.

In his position at Chelsea I think only Makelale is better, nobody else there is as good as Smertin, plus he can carry and distribute the ball so doesn't always have to play a holding role.

i dunno, they have that guy jarosik and he was really good at cska, he aint had that big a chance yet i dont think at chelsea.

how much did chelsea pay for him? it is something pompey could afford?

Having let go Stone and Paddy Berger(stoooopid stooopid thing to do) we now need 2 quality midfielders to fill their boots, but Perrin is a shrewd manager lets see who he signs.Actually we maybe in with a shout for Smertin.

yer, if its true and if he aint in mourinho's plans, then yip, i think it could happen, he had a good spell there the last time and is guarentteed first team football. he will know the place (pompey) so i cant see it being that hard for him adapting there
