Portsmouth are keeping tabs on Motherwell midfielder Liam Polworth.

The Scot has emerged as a potential January transfer window target for Pompey, as per a report by the Portsmouth News.

Kenny Jackett’s side have made a slow start to the League One season and are currently sitting in 15th position after just four wins from 14 games.

They are already in the hunt for possible targets this winter to help climb up the table.

Polworth, who is a former Under-21 international, is seen as someone who would bolster their midfield options.

The 25-year-old only joined Motherwell over the summer but is already being linked with a move away from Fir Park. He has made 16 appearances in all competitions for the Scottish Premiership side under Stephen Robinson.

Polworth represented Scotland at Under-16 and Under-17 levels as a youngster and rose up through the youth ranks of local side Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

He went onto make 210 appearances for them and scored 18 goals altogether. He was part of the Caley Thistle squad who won the Scottish Cup in 2015.

He left after ten years at the Caledonian Stadium this year to join Motherwell but could now be set for a move down the border and into the Football League.

Portsmouth are in need of a couple of new faces in January to freshen up their side and Polworth could be ideal for them.
