PORTSMOUTH striker Ellis Harrison is rumoured to be an Oxford United target.

The U's signed Ryan Williams from Pompey yesterday and are now in a race with Fleetwood Town to recruit another Fratton Park forward, according to the BBC's Andrew Moon.

Harrison has scored 16 goals in 70 games since arriving at Portsmouth in summer 2019.

The 27-year-old has 12 months left on his contract so would command a fee, unlike Williams.

Harrison formed a prolific partnership with United striker Matty Taylor at his first club Bristol Rovers, helping The Gas climb from the Vanarama National League to Sky Bet League One between 2014 and 2016.

He moved to Ipswich Town in 2018, before moving to the south coast a year later.

Harrison scored an own goal in United's play-off semi-final second leg against Portsmouth last July, which Karl Robinson's side won on penalties.
