Fulham interested in Pompey pair

Fulham are interested in making a swoop for Portsmouth defender Matthew Taylor and striker Lomana LuaLua.

And the duo are said to be keen on the move to London, BBC Sport understands.

Meanwhile, Pompey could sign Frenchman Nicolas Anelka from Fenerbahce, while Tottenham have reportedly snubbed their 12m bid for Jermain Defoe.

BBC Sport also understands Arsenal defender Sol Campbell is on the Pompey wanted list and Tony Adams could be Harry Redknapp's new assistant boss.

Redknapp masterminded a run of six victories in 10 games to ensure Portsmouth's Premiership survival last season.

And he has recently met with new owner Sacha Gaydamak and chief executive Peter Storrie to make plans for the new season.

He is expected to be handed cash to strengthen the team but Pompey's opening offer for Defoe has been turned down, according to a Portsmouth News report.

Defoe left England's training camp in Germany this week following the return to fitness of Wayne Rooney.

Redknapp exclusively told BBC Sport last week: "Myself and Peter have met with a good player who we'd very much like to sign for a chat and hopefully we'll get something done there.

"I won't be naming him, but it just shows that we're trying to get things done here."

According to BBC Radio Five Live, former Arsenal and England captain Adams has already had an interview to be Redknapp's new number two.

It follows Kevin Bond's recent departure from Fratton Park to become Glenn Roeder's new assistant at Newcastle.

BBC pundit and former England manager Graham Taylor told BBC Radio Five Live: "If all this happens it will give a clear message to the Portsmouth supporters that says 'we really want to take this club forward.'"
