Crouch too expensive for Pompey
Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has revealed he would love to sign Peter Crouch, but will probably fail in his efforts as Liverpool are demanding too high a price to let the striker leave.
"I'd love to bring Crouchie back here," Redknapp told The News.
"We are trying to do deals to bring in players and (chief executive) Peter Storrie is working on trying to get things done.
"But the fee seems a bit too high, and at the end of the day it comes down to the price.
"It seems like things are getting a bit too expensive.
"Crouchie is a player who is on our list, but if nothing can be done then we will just move on to the next player."
