Portsmouth are putting plans in place as they prepare for the summer transfer window.
Kenny Jackett’s side are still in the hunt to secure promotion to the Championship but that doesn’t mean that they can’t identify potential new arrivals as they look to really kick on next term.
According to reports, they’ve already identified a top target.
The Sun are reporting that Pompey are eyeing a move for Max Taylor.
Taylor currently plays for Manchester United but with his contract expiring at the end of the season it seems likely that he could be set to move on.
The 21-year-old has endured an incredibly difficult time off the pitch in recent years after being diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2018, however he is now fighting to get his career back on track.
It’s claimed that the central defender is currently on trial at Fratton Park as he looks to earn a deal and even played 90 minutes for the club’s reserves side against Luton Town this week.
Moving to Portsmouth will be a big move for Taylor, however, with the defender being part of the Premier League giants’ set-up since the age of 14.
