Portsmouth aim to trump Arsenal for Matuidi

Portsmouth are planning an £8 million bid for St Etienne midfielder Blaise Matuidi.

The Sun says Pompey boss Tony Adams is considering a bid for the St Etienne skipper, who would be a straight replacement for Lassana Diarra.

Arsenal chief Arsene Wenger has been running the rule over the 21-year-old midfield powerhouse but was planning a summer move.

St Etienne wanted to cash in next summer but a Pompey bid may force their hand next month.
