Portsmouth eye swoop for 12-goal League Two striker



According to a reliable football journalist, Portsmouth will consider making a move for Stevenage striker Matt Godden in the January transfer window.

Alan Nixon is reporting via Twitter that Portsmouth hold an interest in prolific Stevenage forward Matt Godden and could make a move when the window re-opens tomorrow.

Pompey currently have a few decent options up top.

Brett Pitman, who joined in the summer from Ipswich Town, has thirteen league goals this season – making him the joint second highest in the division behind Peterborough United’s marksman Jack Marriott (with 17), who has been attracting interest from Leeds United.

Their other options include versatile former Dagenham and Redbridge man Ollie Hawkins, who netted twice at the weekend, and youngster Conor Chaplin, as well as Curtis Main.

But it appears that Kenny Jackett wants another forward to spearhead a promotion push as Pompey moved into the play-offs with a win over Northampton Town at the weekend.

Matt Godden has been identified as a target after adding to his reputation with more goals this season.

The 26-year-old has netted twelve goals in all competitions this term after hitting 21 goals in 43 games in the last campaign.

Stevenage will be desperate to keep the former Ebbsfleet and Scunthorpe forward but Pompey are hoping to poach him this January.

The Verdict

This move seems ideal for all parties.

Pompey need another striker to add competition up front and Godden would be the ideal choice.

Stevenage, meanwhile, could command a hefty fee from Pompey.

Godden would surely be tempted by the lure of a League One club with a massive fanbase and the prospect of possibly playing Championship football next term.
