Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed his interest in Liverpool playmaker Yossi Benayoun, who is also wanted by Manchester City.

However Redknapp, who made his first signing of the summer by landing Glenn Little from Reading on a free transfer, admits it could be difficult to prise him away from Anfield.

Another Liverpool fringe player, Peter Crouch, has been continually linked with a move to Fratton Park, but he could prove too expensive for Pompey.

Redknapp told The News: "Of course I'd like to have someone like Yossi Benayoun.

"He's a top player. I don't know what the chances are of getting him out of Liverpool.

"It's known I like Crouchie, too. 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."
