Pompey manager target Sven Goran Eriksson is reportedly a target for Russian club Zenit St Petersburg.

Former England and Manchester City boss Eriksson has been linked on and off with the Pompey job since Tony Adams was sacked in February.

At the time he was still manager of Mexico, but he lost his job there in March. Now reports in Italy suggest he has been sounded out to replace Dick Advocaat, as has former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri.


Since news of Sulaiman Al Fahim's interest in buying Pompey was revealed in May, Eriksson was again among the riders for the post.

However, it is believed that Pompey's top target was former Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini, although his contractual position with Inter - he is on the pay roll until 2011 despite having lost his job last summer - is a potential stumbling block.

Since February Paul Hart has taken charge of first team affairs and recently it has been suggested he might get the job on a permanent basis, although this has yet to be confirmed.
