Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp is ready to offer £10 million for Liverpool striker Peter Crouch.

The Mirror says Crouch, 26, is desperate to quit Anfield after falling down the pecking order following the summer capture of Fernando Torres and Andrei Voronin.

Now Redknapp wants to buy the England striker, despite twice selling him.

Crouch scored 19 goals in 39 games for Pompey before being flogged by Redknapp to Aston Villa for £5m in 2002.
