Rovers In Talks With Steve Gohouri??
Blackburn Rovers are understood to be interested in Steve Gohouri, however, the same newspaper reports are saying this is because we're expecting a bid for Christopher Samba??
Samba has been reportedly attracting the attentions of the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur for many months (however, this has been denied) and the implication in the Daily Mirror is that Ivory Coast International Gohouri is being lined up as a possible replacement for the Wall.
The Borussia Monchengladbach central defender (another giant like Samba) is understood to be interested in a move to the Premier League and as he's in the final year of his contract the 28-year-old would come in at a reduced fee with the German side concerned about losing Gohouri (who has previously played in France, Italy, Israel and Liechtenstein before Germany) on a FREE Transfer next summer. The report says that with Everton understood to have joined those interested in the Wall Allardyce has invited Gohouri for a "test" (a trial??) and is keen to have talks with him as he lines up a replacement??
