Portsmouth are closing in on the signing of Oldham Athletic striker Craig Davies, HITC Sport understands.

Pompey boss Kenny Jackett is looking to add to his attacking options after seeing Curtis Main leave Fratton Park for Motherwell earlier this week.

Jackett has targeted a move for experienced forward Davies as he bids to strengthen his squad while they look to maintain their push for promotion from League One.

A number of other clubs are understood to have made enquiries to Oldham for Davies, but Portsmouth are hoping to lure the Wales international to Fratton Park.

Davies has a proven track record at this level and Jackett feels he could be the key to firing his side to promotion back to the Championship.

Portsmouth have already signed Wolverhampton Wanderers duo Connor Ronan and Sylvain Deslandes this month and he hopes Davies will be his latest addition.

Davies re-joined Oldham for his second spell at the club last summer and he has scored nine goals in 24 appearances in all competitions for the Latics.

Oldham find themselves just one point and one place above the drop zone in League One and it remains to be seen if they would consider letting the former Manchester City trainee leave during this month's transfer window.
