Rovers To Battle With Spurs For African Ace?!?!
Skysports.com understands that Blackburn Rovers are facing a potential battle with Tottenham Hotspur for highly-rated Congolese star Tresor Mputu.
The 22-year-old (who has previously trained with Arsenal) is set to undergoing a trial with Rovers this week once a visa is organised according to his agent Severin Bohuis (who rates him as one of the best players in Africa) but Rovers face an apparent battle with Tottenham (and others) to sign the TP Mazembe star should this trial period be successful.
Bohuis told skysports.com: "We are currently sorting out a visa for Tresor to come over to England and he should be here by Thursday.
"He is due to go and train with Blackburn once he receives his visa, but there are loads of clubs interested in him as he is one the best players in Africa.
"Tottenham are interested in him and we will see what happens at Blackburn."
