Blackburn Rovers currently sit in 14th place in the Championship, after no wins in their last three league games, which can be seen as a cause for concern.
A disappointing 4-2 defeat away at Queens Park Rangers on the 5th October must’ve given Rovers fans a lot of food for thought, making the upcoming fixtures against Huddersfield and Birmingham City incredibly important.
A key injury to Irish defender Darragh Lenihan has not helped the Lancashire side’s cause, who now look increasingly stretched at the heart of defence.
Although transfer speculation surrounding some Rovers players over the summer is a distant memory, Tony Mowbray needs to be aware that it could be reignited in January, which notoriously is a difficult window in which to sign replacements.
Here are two players that we think could potentially be linked with a move away from Ewood Park in a few months time…
The 25-year-old has been Blackburn’s most important player for the past two seasons, netting 36 times in all competitions for the Lancashire side, which is a very impressive tally for an attacking midfielder.
Manager Tony Mowbray will have to do all he can to keep Dack at Ewood Park, as it was reported previously that Brighton and Aston Villa were interested in his services during the summer transfer window.
His head could have easily been turned elsewhere affecting his football, but his form has not showed signs of letting up. Dack has found the net on four occasions so far for Blackburn this season.
As always, he’s never far away from the tabloids, particularly in a transfer window.
The 26-year-old Irish International has been a key figure at the heart of Blackburn’s defence, forming a partnership will fellow countryman Darragh Lenihan.
Two man-of-the-match performances for Rovers in the Championship this season has shown Williams’s quality at the back, and the Irishman has also contributed with two goals.
Williams will be looking to have a good season this time around at Ewood Park, after injuries disrupted his playing time in the previous campaign.
Another that Rovers could field interest in.
