Pompey check on M'bami

Portsmouth have taken Cameroon international Modeste M'bami on trial.[LNB] M'bami is currently trying to impress new Pompey chief Paul Hart, and he featured against Havant & Waterlooville in a friendly on Tuesday.[LNB]The 26-year-old - who has nearly 30 caps for his country - is available on a free transfer after leaving French giants Marseille earlier this summer.[LNB]He was linked with a move to Turkey, but is now looking to seal a move to Fratton Park.[LNB]M'bami is not alone in trying to earn a move, as fellow French-based players Johan Audel and Fabrice Pancrate are also training with the club.[LNB]Forward Audel spent last season with Valenciennes, whilst Pancrate - who has already interested Burnley this summer - is currently with Paris St Germain.[LNB]Finally, and possible the most interesting name trying his luck with Pompey is midfielder Eugene Bopp.[LNB]The former Nottingham Forest player has spent the last three years playing in the lower leagues with Rotherham and Crewe.[LNB]But Hart knows Bopp well from their time together at the City Ground, and after he departed Crewe at the end of last season, he has now offered the 25-year-old an unlikely chance to earn a possible Premier League deal.[LNB]Bopp, though, did not do his chances any harm on Tuesday as he scored both goals in their friendly clash at Havant.[LNB]
