Rovers Make Bid For Pogrebnyak
Blackburn are set to reach and agreement for Russia international striker Pavel Pogrebnyak who easily has the best name ever.
Rovers are actively searching for a replacement for Roque Santa Cruz who is trying to fashion a move to Man City.
Zenit St Petersberg president Maxim Mitrofanov, speaking to Sky Sports said: 'Yesterday, Blackburn officials contacted us and made an offer for Pogrebnyak.
'Their offer is almost the same as our valuation.
'If they send us the offer officially in time, we will contact Pogrebnyak and will persuade him to go to England.'
Pogrebnyak is the man who recently scored in the World Club Cup final against Manchester United and has 5 goals in 12 games for Russia.
If he is in place soon I am sure that will be the end of the Rovers road for Mr.Cruz.
That is if a deal can be reached.
