Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has put a £15million price tag on striker Peter Crouch.
Benitez also revealed that he had held talks with Aston Villa boss Martin O’Neill over the possible transfer of midfielder Gareth Barry to Liverpool.
Crouch hinted earlier this week he might leave after becoming increasingly frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities.
“Crouch wants to play every week but knows he must fight it out with Fernando Torres,” Benitez said.
“We keep seeing Portsmouth linked with the player but we have had no offer as yet.
“A £15m price tag would not be unreasonable.”
Benitez also confirmed that any discussions over Barry will be put on hold until the end of the season.
“I have spoken to Martin O’Neill, he knows my ideas,” added Benitez.
“But we agreed to wait until the end of the season for any more discussions.”
