Portsmouth confirm Benayoun and Crouch interest

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed his interest in signing Liverpool's Yossi Benayoun.
The Israeli international, who joined the Reds from West Ham United for £5m last summer, has emerged as a potential target for Pompey, as well as Manchester City, although Redknapp believes that it may be difficult to prise Benayoun away from Anfield.
"Of course I'd like to have someone like Yossi Benayoun," said Redknapp. "He's a top player. I don't know what the chances are of getting him out of Liverpool."
Redknapp once again signalled his interest in Peter Crouch, but believes that the Reds' reported £15m asking-price is too much.
"It's known I like Crouchie too," added the Portsmouth coach. "But it doesn't look like anything is happening there. I think Liverpool want a bit too much money for him.
"If that's the case then we'll move on to the next option."
Portsmouth have had a £9m bid for Peter Crouch turned down, even though the striker has only a year left on his Liverpool contract.
Pompey boss Harry Redknapp wanted to pay £7m up front with the rest in extras and pair up the 27-year-old with his England colleague Jermain Defoe.
