Ronan Curtis is understood to remain on Rovers’ radar amid continuing interest in the Republic of Ireland international.

Curtis has netted three times in his last four matches, taking his tally to 14 in all competitions, and it is that goalscoring threat from the wide areas that caught Rovers’ attention back in January 2020.

They were eventually priced out of a move for the winger having scouted him leading into the window, with Curtis later signing a contract extension with Pompey through to the summer of 2023.

Rovers also looked at Kamil Jozwiak in that window, the Polish wide-man eventually signing for Derby County, with Tony Mowbray failing to add to his squad having been handed a budget of just over £1m.

The arrival of Harvey Elliott, on loan from Liverpool, added the extra attacking option Rovers craved ahead of this season, with Tyrhys Dolan having also made an impression on the first-team scene.

With Elliott to return to Liverpool after his loan spell, leaving a 17 goal contribution void, Rovers will look to strengthen their attacking options once again in the summer which could see them reignite interest in Curtis.

As for the player, he’s focusing on a strong end to this season, personally but also for his club, with Pompey pushing for a play-off spot in League One.

They host Accrington Stanley in Sunday’s final fixture, two weeks on from the sides playing out a 3-3 draw at the Wham Stadium, with Danny Cowley’s side occupying the final play-off spot heading into the final week.

Speaking of his future, and Portsmouth’s plight, Curtis told the Sun: “I know there is a lot of interest from clubs above us right now.

“That’s encouraging but all I’m concentrating on is helping Portsmouth to go up.

“Since Danny Cowley and his brother Nicky came in, they’ve been a huge help to me and to the rest of the squad.

“What happens at the end of the season will be taken care of. I just want to repay the faith Portsmouth showed in me by helping get us up.”
