2 Blackburn Rovers players who could be subject to January transfer interest and why

Blackburn Rovers could find themselves rather busy once the transfer window reopens in January.

After a quiet market in terms of incomings during the summer, Rovers may need to recruit again at the turn of the year, if they are to continue their strong start to the season.

However, there could also be outgoings from the club, with Joe Rothwell looking set to sign a pre-contract agreement with Scottish champions Rangers, as exclusively revealed by Football League World.

It is also likely, that the midfielder will not be the only players whose future at Ewood Park will be the subject of speculation come the January window.

So with that in mind, we’ve taken a look at two other Blackburn players, who could also attract interest from elsewhere come once the transfer market reopens.

Which club do these 30 former Blackburn Rovers players now play for?

Morten Gamst Pedersen?

Ben Brereton Diaz

It would almost feel like a bigger surprise if there was not interest in Ben Brereton come the January transfer window.

The attacker has started the campaign in simply excellent form, scoring 12 goals in 18 appearances in all competitions for club and country, as his profile continues to rapidly increase.

Given the need there always is for goalscorers – and the fact that as things stand, Rovers are relying on a 12-month option to ensure the Chilean is not out of contract at the end of this season – clubs may well see Brereton as an attainable option for them, who can make an impact in front of goal.

Ryan Nyambe

Having used a 12-month option to keep Nyambe at the club for this season, Blackburn have even less protection when it comes to their attempts to keep the right-back, than they do with Brereton.

That is something that really ought to be attracting the attention of other sides, given Nyambe is an incredibly strong full-back from a defensive standpoint, and one whose attacking abilities are improving as well.

With that in mind, the prospect of getting a quality player such as Nyambe on the cheap – or a free pre-contract if you are abroad – means you feel clubs will be circling for the Namibian come January, if Blackburn have not secured a new contract for him before then.
