Kenny Jackett has stressed Pompey have yet to make a bid for Boreham Wood’s Bruno Andrade – but the forward remains on their radar.
Andrade has trained with the Blues, although over a period of days rather than weeks.
He was also in the Westleigh Park stands to watch the reserves’ 2-1 defeat against Everton under-23s earlier this month.
The former QPR man has since returned to the National League club, where he has continued to perform.
Andrade is currently joint-top of the division’s scoring charts with nine goals – a position he shares with ex-Pompey striker Ryan Bird, who is now with Dover.
And the Blues will continue to cast their eye over the Portuguese talent.
Jackett said: ‘We haven’t made any bids for Andrade.
‘Do I know who you mean? Yes I do. I would like to think I know all the top goalscorers around, definitely.
’Have we made a bid for him? No, that’s not the case.
‘If you look at our forward line anyway we have plenty of options. I am sure we will keep monitoring him.’
The Blues have also cast their eye over striker Victor Adeboyejo in training. He is currently trialling at Chelsea.
