Peter Crouch A Rovers Target?
Blackburn Rovers are understood to be waiting to cash in on Portsmouth's apparent financial problems with a summer bid for Peter Crouch.
Sam Allardyce is understood to have tried to sign the England International in the January transfer window without success but WHEN our Premier League safety is secured Big Sam could begin the building of his own side with a £10 million move for the 28-year-old who has scored 10 goals in 31 Premier League appearances for Portsmouth this season.
With debts (apparently) pilling up for the South Coast club they look like they will have to sell more of their best players in the summer. Having already lost Lassana Diarra (to Real Madrid) and Jermaine Defoe (who returned to Tottenham Hotspur) in January, Crouch (who earns a reported £60,000 per week) is another high-earned that could be offloaded at a good price to help ease these along with his fellow England International Glen Johnson, who is understood to be interesting Liverpool?
Crouch fits perfectly into Big Sam's ideal big target man mould, as these are the types of striker that he has always liked to have play for his sides.
