Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams admits he isn't surprised they're being linked with Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy. And didn't deny that the hitman was a target.
The Blackburn chairmen speaking first hand clarified that whilst he was in no position to reveal targets he did not move to rule out a move. Williams said: 'I've no idea if Liverpool want to sell him.
'His name is on everyone's lips because he did very well here.'
He added on BBC Radio Lancashire: 'It's an open secret we would like another striker at the club.'
Williams goes on to acknowledge that an experienced hitman who will bag 20 goals a season won't come cheap and it is very rare that they do.... a rare exception being a man at the Rovers at the moment.
'Strikers don't usually come cheap,' he said.
'It's unlikely we're going to find a 20-goal-a-season man for £500,000.
'Will we find a striker? I think we will. Obviously, there are names in the frame.'
My take on it is that I would have no qualms about having Bellamy back as he is a genuine top flight striker with bags of pace.... but he must come at the right price.
Finally, this is the first article I have published myself personally and I would just like to say I am delighted to be on board and I have no release clauses in my contract, will be good to work with you all and being a fan myself I am open to any criticism and requests.
Hopefully I'll be seeing a lot more of people on this site as well as new members, you know you want to... go on. The worlds' greatest football team is on here and you can talk about it - what bigger incentive do you need????
Anyway enough sucking up... enjoy.
