Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes’ search for new players has apparently taken him to Holland in recent weeks, with Michael Bradley and Moussa Dembele the targets?

Rovers scouts have been spotted in Holland several times recently with a range of players at a range of teams understood to have been watched, but Heerenveen’s Bradley and AZ Alkmaar’s Dembele have emerged as the two favoured targets for Hughes? His chances of signing them could be slim, but if he moves fast he may be able to?

20-year-old Bradley is an American International midfielder (who became the youngest ever player to leave the American MLS when aged just 16 to move to Holland) and has been quoted as saying he would like to play in the English Premier League or the Bundesliga, however, several other clubs including Newcastle United are understood to be interested.

Dembele is a Belgian International winger (who is also making a name for himself in Holland) is unlikely to be sold as Alkmaar are not in a position where they have to at all, however, it is understood that he could be subject to a great amount of interest this summer.

  • Both have good reputations so if Sparky could land one, or both they would be very good additions not only to the squad but potentially the starting XI.

  • Yer ones for the future too, would be good, but then again if you look at who our rivals are signing, then does show. But it then shows the quality of our management and team, with the positions we get in the league, so whoever they sign we know they will be good!!
