Tony Mowbray will be fairly satisfied with Blackburn Rovers’ start to the season with the first international break of the campaign now upon us.
Rovers lost two key players in Harvey Elliott and Adam Armstrong this summer, and you would have been somewhat forgiving had there been a lacklustre start to the campaign.
But Mowbray’s men have endured a steady start to proceedings, yielding eight points from their first five games following a battling 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon.
Rovers now head into the international break looking to rest and recuperate, with two home fixtures in quick succession on the horizon following the lay-off.
For Mowbray, though, his focus over the next 48 hours will be solely on the transfer window, with the manager undoubtedly looking to bring in new players and reshape his squad.
With that being said, we take a look at two transfer scenarios to look out for at Blackburn over the next few days…
With Mowbray keen to add more players to his squad, one man who could arrive is Manchester City winger Patrick Roberts.
Blackburn, as well as Bournemouth, Stoke and Swansea are all said to be interested in signing the 24-year-old, as per Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas.
Roberts may well be allowed to leave for nothing, providing City have a future sell-on percentage of any future transfer fee.
The winger spent time on loan at Middlesbrough and Derby County last season, making a combined total of 36 appearances, scoring twice and adding four assists.
Interest from across Europe has recently emerged in Kaminski, with Rovers have had to fend off ahead of the final few days of the window.
Kaminski has impressed at Ewood Park since his £450,000 arrival from Gent last summer, and it is claimed that Rovers have no need, or any interest whatsoever, in selling him before the end of the window.
Every player has a price, however, and if a club is to come in for him before the end of the window, then it will be interesting to see if Rovers stick with that stance.
There is no reason why that stance would change, of course, but every player has a price and nothing can ever really be ruled out.
