Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has admitted his interest in bringing Lyon striker Milan Baros to Fratton Park.

Redknapp's admission he would like to sign the Czech Republic forward came after Baros' agent, Pavel Paska, made Pompey's interest public.

"Baros is a player I know. I like him and I would be interested. I think he's a good player and certainly has a great pedigree." Redknapp told the Portsmouth News.

He added: "We need more bodies up front. That was the case before Kanu went (to the African Nations Cup) and now we've only got two. We need to strengthen there, for sure."

Pompey's chief executive Peter Storrie is now understood to be in France negotiating the release of the 26-year-old from Lyon and a deal could be done before the end of the week.
