Blackburn Rovers are monitoring Per Ciljan Skjelbred's situation at Rosenborg, the player's advisor has suggested.
The 21-year-old impressed during last season's UEFA Champions League group stages and has reportedly caught the eye of a number of European clubs.
Newcastle United were recently linked with an approach for the Norway international's services, but Skjelbred's advisor has claimed Blackburn and Dutch side Ajax have also shown an interest.
"They might have watched other players too," advisor Andreas Ekker told Adresseavisen.
"But Blackburn and Ajax are two clubs who have been mentioned in connection with Per in the past."
