Rovers are not short on attacking talent, with Mame Biram Diouf, Nikola Kalinic, Jason Roberts, David Hoilett and Benjani already on the club's books.

Steve Kean has also brought Roque Santa Cruz back to the club on loan from Manchester City since the transfer window re-opened.

It appears they are keen to add yet more firepower to their ranks, though, with Maguire having caught the eye.

The Scotland U21 international has spent his entire career to date with Aberdeen, but is set to see his current contract expire at the end of the season.

That has led to intense speculation regarding his future, with there no indication that fresh terms will be agreed.

Rovers hope they can persuade Maguire to up sticks and take on a new challenge in England, with the 22-year-old regarded as a hot prospect for the future.
