Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray is looking to add up to five new players this summer as he seeks backing from owners Venkys in the transfer window.
Mowbray has done more than enough this season to show his ability at Championship level, with Rovers putting in some impressive performances to land a solid mid-table spot on their return to the second tier.
However, Mowbray is keen to add more quality to the ranks at Ewood Park, and according to Alan Nixon, is looking to add up to five new players if he can find the right faces for his squad.
The Blackburn squad has plenty of talent already amongst it, but Mowbray is likely to look to strengthen both up the top of the pitch in attack, while adding some quality at the back might also be near the top of his agenda.
The likes of Bradley Dack and Danny Graham have been superb for Rovers as they have left their mark on the Championship, and Mowbray will no doubt be looking for players of similar ilk to come in and make an impression on proceedings at Ewood Park.
Rovers lost out yesterday at Villa Park but once again put in a decent enough showing to suggest that with a few additions they could well make a run at the top six next term.
Mowbray deserves to be backed here, and he could well lead Rovers to success if he is backed well.
Venkys though have a bit of a poor history when it comes to providing funds, and it will be interesting to see if they do back him or not come the summer.
If any Championship manager deserves it though, then it’s Mowbray.
