Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has told the Lancashire Telegraph that the club are looking to cover all areas during the upcoming transfer window.
The Lancashire side are currently well in the race for both the play-offs and automatic promotion at the time of writing after making a superb start to the season that has largely been driven by the form of Ben Brereton Diaz.
Now Rovers are understandably keen to strengthen their existing squad this month as they seek to consolidate their position moving forwards further into the new year.
Speaking recently, Mowbray was quick to emphasise that he is looking to leave no stone unturned after the market opened a couple of days ago:
“Without going into specifics we have to recruit for the players who, and these lads won’t down tools, but if the games are getting feisty and they are in danger of damage, we’ve had some pretty bad injuries in recent times to some good footballers and I would never question their integrity other than I need to make sure the club is covered in areas.”
Quiz: Can you name which club Blackburn Rovers signed these 20 strikers from?
There are said to be funds which are available to spend this month for Rovers, however there isn’t a never ending supply of cash, which means Mowbray will need to think about the short and the long term.
Blackburn have already been linked with the likes of John Souttar, Ryan Hedges, Oliver Burke and Josh Maja as they seek to add some more quality to their ranks.
It will certainly be interesting to see who Rovers bring in over the next month or so, as their starting eleven is pretty settled at present.
Any player coming into Ewood Park would need to be able to force their way into the side, otherwise there would be little point in the move taking place to begin with.
Now that Leighton Clarkson is gone and Ian Poveda is injured, there is a possibility that some more loan signings could be on the cards before January is out.
The existing relationships that the club has with various Premier League clubs could really serve them well moving forwards.
