Rovers may be in a relegation battle but that still hasn’t stopped the rumour mill warming up and this morning’s main bit of Rovers gossip is that Venky’s are plotting a Nicklas Bendtner swoop.

He who certainly seems to fancy himself a bit has been on the outskirts of the Arsenal first team this season but whether Bendtner would consider the move seems debatable.

Some figures are bandied about – £15 million transfer fee, decent sized wages.

Want more info? Head for the Daily Mail…

The Daily Mail is reporting – ‘Real Madrid’s Kaka has been mooted recently, following their ambitious attempts to lure Ronaldinho and David Beckham, but Bendtner is seen as a more realistic target.

A quality Premier League striker tops their wish-list and Rovers have the funds to pay a £15million transfer fee and tempt Bendtner with big wages.

The main problem will be whether the Dane is interested in quitting Arsenal for one of the Premier League’s less glamorous clubs.’

  • Never gonna happen this one let’s face it. He isn’t worth that amount (we all know he thinks he is) and with his ego he wouldn’t want to play for a club like Blackburn. Maybe Vela would be a more realistic target with a big signing coming from abroad.

  • He is a worse finisher than Roberts, without Roberts work ethic, ego the size of a bus so he will think he’s way too good for us. That suits me as I think he would be an awful buy.

  • We have plenty of hardworking non-scoring strikers already. Would surely be better to get a speedy goal scorer to play alongside Kalanic/Roberts/Benjani (and Santa if we keep him). Maybe test Sunderland and their finance worries with £15m for Gyan or Sturidge from Chelsea for less than that.

  • As a dane it is a split decision this one, I would like him, but I think he remains me to much of Kalinic. It will only happen if Faxe is at the club. A danish invasion you see :-).
    Just wait the next is a summer trip to Denmark, where Rovers play against Brondby…cheers

  • Can see in the Danish media that Dortmund and Bayern wants him also so it will be a hard fight.
    Rovers23: If Blackburn don’t get relegated I can’t see why Faxe isn’t at the club if Kean is there. Why is he “absolute ******” any facts on that or just negativity over Venkys, Kean, & Faxe?

  • he has certainly improved this season in goal scoring and passing and think he would be a good addition. i doubt he would let himself to move to ewood park though

  • riisenholt: because there is a correlation between Faxe arriving and our 6 game winless streak.. he is not keans assistant.. he is a Kentaro step in.. If Kean is actually going to be manager past this season then he needs his own assistant in.. not some randomer Jerome Anderson drafted in..

  • he’d be a good buy, just not sure about the 15 million. and seriously, jensen isnt that bad an assistant manager as rover23 makes him out to be, personally i think hes miles better than neil robinson or mark bowen

  • How good this move will be, will IMO be dependent on if Faxe is this the assistant manager and if we also will buy Kahlenberg, because then Bendtner will work work his ash off for the team. I’m 99% sure. I don’t actually think Arsenal will sell him though

  • What about Samba going to Arsenal and we get Bendtner, and no money in between? Samba has done so badly IMO after he got a new contact (hopefully he will get better though)…cheers
