West Ham and Crystal Palace to battle for Blackburn's £20m Bradley Dack in January who hit the headlines for dating Love Island star
The 24-year-old No10 is having a great first season in the Championship scoring nine goals in 17 appearances.
And his displays have caught the attention of a host of Premier League clubs who have been tracking his progress this term as they look to beef up their attacking options.
SunSport understands the Hammers and Palace are preparing to test Rovers’ resolve with bids of around £20million for the talented Londoner who dated Love Island star Olivia Attwood.
Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini is looking to add a playmaker with an eye for goal in January with Manuel Lanzini still feeling his way back to fitness after his long-term knee injury.
Palace have used Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend as a pair in attack.
But the potential arrival of Dack would allow Roy Hodgson the option of moving one of them wide to accommodate the former Gillingham man who moved to Rovers last year from Priestfield for just £750,000.
The Championship side will be desperate to hold on to their top scorer while they are still in the mix for promotion.
Blackburn are 10th, but just four points off the last play-off spot held by Sheffield United.
Rovers could offer Dack a lucrative new contract to keep him at Ewood Park to ward off any potential suitors next month.
Club owners Venky’s have got the Lancashire outfit back on settled ground and will look to give boss Tony Mowbray every chance to take the club forward.
Mowbray penned a new long-term contract last month and will not want any of his best players sold as he fights for promotion.
But the lure of the Premier League and a possible return to London could make it a tough decision for Dack if their interest is firmed up in the next transfer window.
Dack scored was on target again in Rovers 4-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and assisted all three goals for Danny Graham’s hat-trick.
