But Danny Cowley is set for another busy period with a new goalkeeper, right-back and a midfielder on his list, while addition strikers remain top priority.
We asked for you to named the players (within reason!) you wanted to see arrive in the coming weeks.
And Pompey fans have clearly been doing their homework with the names they’ve offered up as the window approaches.
Here are 15 names you’ve suggested Cowley should eye.
1. Brandon Thomas-Asante - Salford
Thomas-Asante was linked with a switch to Pompey prior to the season’s conclusion following an impressive campaign. The 23-year-old scored 11 goals in 39 appearances in League Two, while also contributing four assists last term.

3. Corey O'Keeffe - Rochdale
The 23-year-old had a solid season in League Two for both Mansfield and Rochdale, assisting nine goals in 43 outings. His forward runs and crosses have led him to become one of the standout right-backs in the league and could be an option with his current deal at the Dale set to come to an end next month.
