Blackburn To Move For Camara.

Rovers chief Mark Hughes is set to make a move for Wigan striker Henri Camara, according to the players agent.

The Senegal striker is deemed surplus to requirements at Wigan despite being a pacy forward who can finish... because apparently Wigan have loads of those... Heskey anyone??

Blackburn could pick him up for a reasonable price and despite this being mere specualtion at this point, Rovers have made contact.

His agent in Africa, Mamadou Cherif, said: 'I have been in contact with Portsmouth and Blackburn,' he told the L'Observateur website in Senegal.
'There is one club who have made an offer which is Fulham, but Wigan haven't responded and it doesn't please us much either. I am working on two trails: Portsmouth and Blackburn.'

I for one would be delighted to have Henri here as he has shown he can do it and I know Hughes could get the best out of him. But he must keep his notorious attitude in check... if he is to be a success.

If he does it is the final nail in the coffin of Shabani Nonda's move to Ewood.

MikeyGamst, Speculation King.

I would like to have him here but it al depends on price and his commitment to the cause, we'll find out in due course I suppose....
MikeyGamst
Beaten to this by MikeyGamst this time LOL! VBer (Zair) had private messaged me on this matter so I was going to shair their thoughts, but dude you have done this superbly!!!
Hughes Da Man
I see what you are saying dude, but would he really be the improvement that we are looking for?!?!
Hughes Da Man
we have to remember that Camara is a much an attacking midfielder rather than an out and out striker... or at least that what i think, more in the line of Rooney rather than Gerrard. Brining him in would give us more options if we wanted to play a 4411 rather than the typcial 442. This lad is a great talent and would fit in superbly with Benni etc all.
Ex Ewood Resident
Good point dude, if Sparky opts for the lone striker (away against the likes of Manure, Chelsea, Arsenal & Liverfool etc.) Camara could prove the ideal man to drop off the front man, didn't really think of it that way.
The costs involved could prove a problem then? Is he a 3 million plus good enough alternative??? He is 30-years-old also isn't he?!?!
Hughes Da Man
We need to look at a younger age bracket I think. Camara may be talented but I dont feel he has the mentality to be a hit at Ewood. Time will tell, Sparky knows best!
im_a_blackburn_rover
What happened to the santa cruz link. I would much rather him then kamara.
sasman
I would prefer Camara as he is less likely to come for the money!!!! And would cost less. And he has great pace which is something we lacked until Jason came back last year.
MikeyGamst
And its a phrase you love HDM but.... you snooze you lose mate... lol. And in Sparky we trust which is the site motto.
MikeyGamst
A great player in my opinion, but rumours say he's having some hard time adapting to England (family wise)?!??
IsraeliRover
I think on his day he is a class act. But when did he last have one of those days? The fact he was behind Heskey and McCulloch doesn't bode well, does it?
Wellsy
Maybe it was down to the judgement of the management??? McCulloch is a good player though... he is better than both of those IMO.
MikeyGamst
we dont need a new striker! we already have 4 amazing strikers and we would have too many if he joined.
Derbyshire4England
Good point D4E - unless Benni does leave. Mikey, I don't agree that McCulloch is better than Camara, but they are different players.
Wellsy
McCullogh plays on the left wing......
IsraeliRover
I meant Camara is better than McCullough... sorry bit difficult to understand!
MikeyGamst
MikeyGamst - Touche dude. I snoozed too long LOL!
Hughes Da Man
Clearly lying too much like BomBom...
MikeyGamst
This is a very bad move in my opinion. He is old, half-hearted and would hamper the progress of De Vita, Derbs and Rigters. Leave well alone IMO.
roversman
Dude, I think you have probably said what I have been too afraid to say!!! You know me and my "sit on the fence" stance LOL!
Hughes Da Man
Old? he's 30....I'm not sure about De-Vita- did'nt really impress so far in the reserves- perhaps a loan move will suit him??
IsraeliRover
I agree with with Roversman, this guy is'nt good enough to play for us. While I too would like to see Derbs & Rigters regularly next season, I still think we need to sign a proven striker, whoever that may be!
spinaker7081
i think rather then adding another striker, we should invest in an attacking midfielder. This would be beneficial for our european ties as it allows a link between the mids and frontline.
