Gareth Ainsworth is emerging as a major target for Blackburn Rovers as they bid to find a replacement for Paul Lambert, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Wycombe Wanderers chief has worked wonders with the Chariboys in his four years in charge at Adams Park, keeping them afloat despite financial difficulty.
Now 43, the former QPR midfielder actually started his career at Ewood Park as a trainee before being released in the early 1990s.
The Lancashire club are understood to want to cut their options down to a three-man shortlist in the coming days as they ramp up attempts to replace Lambert.
The likes of Alan Stubbs, Neil Redfearn, Nigel Warnock are all believed to have gone under consideration in recent weeks.
Whoever is to be in charge will have to work on a much smaller budget than his predecessors, with Rovers set to lose their Premier League parachute payments this season.
Would Ainsworth be a smart replacement for Lambert? Should they be looking for perhaps more ambitious targets?
