Manchester City trio Ben Knight, James McAtee and Morgan Rogers could all come into Blackburn Rovers’ thinking as they aim to bolster their attacking options before the window closes, according to the Lancashire Telegraph.
Blackburn have been aiming to bolster their attack following Adam Armstrong’s departure for Southampton.
Tony Mowbray’s side have recently been linked with a potential move for Michael Obafemi and Brighton’s Reda Khara as they look to bring in new additions as soon as possible.
While it has also been reported that Blackburn could be set to rival Nottingham Forest in the pursuit of Manchester City attacker Rodgers before the window closes.
That is something that has been reaffirmed by the Lancashire Telegraph’s latest report with the 19-year-old in their thoughts at this stage.

The report from the Lancashire Telegraph also outlines that both Knight and McAtee are two other Manchester City attacking players that Rovers have on their radar as potential options to come in and improve their options in the final third.
Knight is a versatile forward that is capable of operating down the right-hand side and also as a number ten. While McAtee is more of a traditional attacking midfielder and both players could potentially add extra quality to Rovers’ attack.
Blackburn have developed a strong relationship with Manchester City in recent years and as s result, it would not be a surprise to see them secure a move for the likes of Rogers, Knight and McAtee this summer.
All three players are unlikely to sign for Rovers and it will therefore be a case of them identifying which of those is the best fit for what they need at the moment.
Rogers is the player with most pedigree out of the trio but he has been heavily linked with a move to Nottingham Forest and therefore it might be a difficult move for Blackburn to pull off.
Knight appears to be a very versatile option that would give cover in a couple of different positions in the attacking third. He might be a wise addition to the squad to add some vital extra creativity in the wide areas or from the number ten position.
McAtee might be seen as a player more similar to Harvey Elliot in the sense that he is more of an attacking midfielder and that is certainly an area where Rovers could look to add to having lost the Liverpool loanee from their squad from last season.
