Mifsud Linked With Rovers

Blackburn Rovers are being linked with Coventry City striker Michael Mifsud.

The Maltese International shot to fame with two goals against Manchester United in this seasons Carling Cup (which knocked them out) and has so far scored 16 goals this season. These goals have brought with them apparent interest from Premier League clubs (with a 5 million price tag put on his head) and it is understood that Rovers are one of them. Mifsud is being quoted (through my old favourite, a mystery source close to the player) as saying he would be interested in a move to a Premier League club.

An apparent source close to Mifsud told the News of the World: "Michael is aware Premier League clubs are watching.

"While he is happy at Coventry, he wants to play at the highest level
."

Mifsud looks a good footballer, but I'm going to get straight to the point, I don't think he is worth 5 million, nor do I think Rovers will pay that type of money!!!

Personally I think this is just newspaper speculation, nothing more. I can't see us paying 5 million for him, he isn't worth 5 million for starters, plus Sparky would rather use this money on an established striker if he did, wouldn't he?!?!

There is no-way we are going to be spending 5m on a striker - especially with our accounts report that has just been released. Would he be that good in the Prem? He doesn't seem to score week-in week-out.

When we could have bought Diarra for 5m but didn't why would we buy a Championship player for the same amount. Also, like Bom says we are struggling for cash atm and Mifsud is another example of the over-inflated market!

Very useful at that level but how many make the step up. If you want to spend 5m would like our David Nugent?

I would snap your hands off for Nugent, although I'm sure he would prob go for less now considering.

he's causing upset at pompey apparently as he is out ranking other earners at the club. I think the chairman and board need to start pushing for some investment asap.
