The Zonz being eyed up from Russia?
Rovers are hardly awash with options in midfield at the moment what with Brett Emerton now in Sydney, Vince Grella and David Dunn constantly battling their now mandatory injuries and Keith Andrews finding life in Norfolk infinitely more interesting than life in Lancashire.
So news that the one constant in midfield for us this season - Steve N'Zonzi - is being lined up for a move to icy Russia will not exactly be met with a broad smile and open arms.
According to the Daily Mail, Spartak Moscow are keen to get their hands on the rather lanky midfield man and would be prepared to offer £8 million for his services (quite where they get the figures from I have no idea).
Steve Kean would be loath to lose the 22 year old who we originally bought for a snip at £400,000 from Amiens just over two years ago but it remains to be seen whether the club could be tempted by a large bid as £8 million does appear a healthy profit.
It also remains to be seen whether this report from the Mail holds any water but I reckon we should be doing our best to hang onto player like Steve because at 22 he hasn't even got near his peak yet.
