Blackburn boss Steve Kean has revealed that they are interested in signing former Manchester United star Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Van Nistelrooy, who is currently plying his trade at Hamburg, has previously admitted his interest in returning to England at some point in the future and Blackburn are ready to offer him that opportunity.
Blackburn's owners Venky's are keen to bring in a big-name signing to boost their profile and van Nistelrooy could fit the bill.
The Dutchman is out of contract at Hamburg at the end of the season and could arrive at Ewood Park on a free transfer.
Kean has now confirmed the 34-year-old hit-man is on Blackburn's list of transfer targets for next season.
"Yes, I can confirm we are interested," Kean told the ESPN soccernet.
