Portsmouth are considering a move for Motherwell’s Liam Polworth after scouting the midfielder in recent weeks, according to the Daily Record.
Polworth has been a regular in the Motherwell side this term as he started all 12 of their league matches, and he has played a key role in helping Stephen Robinson’s side up to third spot in the Scottish Premiership.
It is now being reported that the 25-year-old, who can play in a variety of roles across midfield, is the subject of interest from Portsmouth who will be on the look-out for improvements to their squad following a disappointing start to the season.
The south-coast outfit are currently sitting 15th in the League One table after winning just four league games this term, and manager Kenny Jackett is now thought to have identified Polworth as a potential signing ahead of the January window.
The Pompey scouting team will now reportedly make a decision on whether to sign the playmaker over the coming weeks, while Polworth will now be preparing for Motherwell’s difficult test against league leaders Celtic on the weekend.
Would Liam Polworth be a good signing for Portsmouth?
Polworth has made an excellent start to the season following his move to Motherwell over the summer, which means it is no surprise to see him linked with a switch to England in the near future.
The 25-year-old has really kicked on since his move away from Inverness, and he is the profile of player who Portsmouth have every reason to be interested in given that he is still relatively young, but has gained plenty of career experience to date.
He has already registered six assists in the league this season, which means he possesses a creative edge that Portsmouth have perhaps been lacking of late, and he would surely be a positive addition to Jackett’s squad.
