Most Blackburn Rovers fans acknowledge that someone extra in midfield is needed (and younger legs at that!) and if newspaper talk is right Rovers are looking at French youngster Sofiane Feghouli.

Previously Rovers had been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Huddlestone, but with Tottenham unlikely to sell the former England Under-21 International manager Mark Hughes will look elsewhere, with the suggestion being that Grenoble midfielder Feghouli is on the wanted list? He has only made a handful of first-team appearance for the French club but has played for France at Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 levels.

The 17-year-old was linked with Ajax, Barcelona, Chelsea, Liverpool, AC Milan and Valencia over the summer, but it is understood that his style of play is more suited to the Premier League, which is where he wants to be, so maybe in January Rovers will look to move for the youngster? However, they would probably face competition from Chelsea, and most likely Liverpool, who were VERY strongly linked with him in the summer.

  • I don’t know ANYTHING at all about the dude really (apart from he’s GOOD and that’s all you need to know!!!), but with that amount of teams (and of that quality!) watching him he must be something special?!?!

  • More rubbish journalism. Lifted from Tribalfootball of all places. If you are going to lift a story do what the LET should do and investigate further…

  • It’s true DP. Sometimes a stroy breaks and all the major sources have the main facts a few phone calls soon suggest there is little more in the offing. Therefore it is important to replicate those facts. Plus, you lose sight of what this site is all about. It is primarily a means of maintaining Rovers news whilst allowing for discussion. We are not, nor try to be Skysports or BBC! Although we have broke some news before them in the past! I’m assuming you are a journalist then DP or just another of the most erudite critics who revel in belittling others?

  • DP is obviously just another of those Cretins (like the sad old git I’ve spoken about in another article, you never know this could be the sad old git revealing himself at last!!!) the type that I just laugh at now, and basically pitty as they have nothing better to do but pick holes in something because they are jealous!
    If you don’t like it DP, sorry to be blunt but ***** off and don’t read it!

  • That’s true Mikey, also I don’t want to force people off obviously but I (well none of us!!!) don’t want them on here if they don’t want to be on here!!!

  • its like chalky who comes on here for a quick jab and then does one… what is the point??? sorry guys I am a bit upset about the Man city game not being on boxing day… gggrrrrrr

  • Attention seeking, looking to stirr the pot then they are too chicken to see what they get back. Tossers if another name for it lol!
