Two More Rovers Arrivals Reported
Blackburn Rovers are understood to be looking to capture two high profile players this summer according to the latest speculation.
Mohamed Zidan (who has been linked with Rovers before) still has three-years of a four-year contract with Borussia Dortmund to run but this hasn't stopped speculation linking the Egyptian midfielder with a move to Ewood Park. However, Zidan has been quick to dismiss this saying he's happy in Germany.
Zidan is quoted on Setanta Sports as saying: "I have already signed a contract for four years and I have three years left of that contract, so I still have time to make it at this team and the club.
"And I don't think I would make the decision to leave Borussia Dortmund.
"I am very happy being a member of the team."
The 27-year-old Egyptian International would make a superb signing for Rovers but this isn't going to happen as Zidan is happy where he is and even if Dortmund let Zidan go he wouldn't be cheap!!!
The other player that Rovers are understood to be interested in is Espanyol's former Barcelona player Ivan de la Pena. The midfielder has been offered a new contract with Espanyol and the reports (coming from Spain) are understood to be mainly down to his agent linking Rovers with the former Spanish International to get a better contract from the Barcelona based La Liga club!!!
Personally I also think that de la Pena would make another good signing, but once again this isn't going to happen and this is more down to his agent seeking a better deal for his client.
