Bayern Munich striker Roque Santa Cruz is believed to be seriously considering a move to England, could this open the door for Blackburn Rovers?
The Paraguayan International striker is surplus to requirement with the German Giants, so he has all but decided it is time to move on. He was previously linked with a move to Ewood Park a few weeks back, but this trail has since gone cold.
However, with Rovers, Manchester City and West Ham United all understood to be interested, his admission (albeit through his agent) that a move to England is something that he would like could see the English trio edge ahead of another potential suitor in Italian Giant Roma.
Originally I was VERY keen on him coming here, and although I would not be opposed to it now, as he is a quality striker maybe (unless others leave, which we would hope the don't!!!) we don't really need him? If it comes down to money West Ham are believed to have said they will go higher than anyone else, which is an absolute joke!!!
Santa Cruz's agent Jan van Baal told skysports.com:
"There has been interest from some clubs in Roque, but nothing concrete.
"At this stage it looks like he will leave Bayern Munich, but nothing is settled.
"His first choice if he moves would be England.
"The Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world and is a big dream of Roque's to play there."
So what is the feeling now about Santa Cruz guys? Do we want, or even need him?!?! As ever have your say below.
