Blackburn could make a move for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe, possibly in a swap deal that would take defender Chris Samba to Spurs.
That is what is being reported in today’s Daily Mirror. Defoe has previously admitted he has been unhappy with his bit-part role at Spurs last season but does not want to push to leave the club.
Samba has been previously linked with a move to Arsenal but Spurs are keen to sign another central defender following the release of Jonathan Woodgate.
Blackburn’s biggest problem would be trying to persuade Defoe to leave his native London.
