Blackburn Rovers are closing in on the signing of Sporting Lisbon forward Simon Vukcevic.
Vukcevic: Set for move
Rovers have confirmed to Sky Sports News that the Montenegro forward, who can also play in midfield, was undergoing a medical at Ewood Park.
The 25-year-old has long been linked with a switch to England and he finally looks set to get his move to the Premier League.
It is reported a fee of £2million has been agreed with Sporting for Vukcevic, who could pen a deal in the next 24 hours.
Rovers boss Steve Kean confirmed to the Lancashire Telegraph he was hoping to conclude three deals.
Kean said: "Things have moved on. We have had bids accepted and we are close to three players now."
