Nikola Zigic is once again being linked with Blackburn Rovers, and with him leaving Valencia in the summer there are some reports that Sam Allardyce could be interested.
Paul Ince was interested in the giant Serbian last summer and it is understood that he came close to signing the striker (with Stoke City also interested), however, the 28-year-old ended up on loan with Racing Santander and after a successful spell a permanent move away from Valencia is expected and a move to England this summer does interest him.
Zigic was quoted on Sky Sports as saying: "Valencia hold the key to my future and I will make a decision on what to do next after meeting with the club in June.
"I am happy in Spain but I need to play regularly and that has proven difficult at Valencia.
"I will only leave for a club that has ambition and where I will get the opportunity to play. England? That is a serious option for me."
Aston Villa are also understood to be interested in Zigic, who is attracting a lot of attention according to Valencia's Sporting Director Fernando Gomez.
Gomez added: "Some clubs have already asked about his situation.
"The subject is on hold until the end of the season, but Zigic is interesting many clubs in Spain and abroad."
The Serbian International is ideally suited to Allardyce's way of thinking as he's a tall and powerful target man who could bring others into play so maybe there could be some truth in these reports?
