Nuno Gomes: Set for Blackburn deal
Sky Sports understands that veteran Portuguese striker Nuno Gomes has arrived in England for a medical at Blackburn Rovers.
Gomes, who will turn 36 this week, is available on a free transfer after leaving Braga.
He is now set to sign a two-year deal at Ewood Park, subject to him passing his medical with the Lancashire outfit.
Rovers, who have already landed Danny Murphy and Leon Best this summer, are believed to be lining up a number of Portuguese deals.
As well as Gomes, they are understood to be in talks with 19-year-old winger Fabio Nunes, who spent last season on loan at Parma from Portimonense.
And a third Portuguese deal is on the cards as they also look keen to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Adrien Silva.
