Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is closing in on Bolton Wanderers striker Nicolas Anelka.

The Daily Mail says Redknapp was in pole position for the £12 million-rated forward, 28, and officials will try to negotiate a four-year deal worth around £80,000 a week.

West Ham and Manchester United are monitoring his situation but have other priorities while Everton also made an enquiry, as their move for Middlesbrough's Yakubu stalled on Monday, but were put off by the wages.
