The 20-year-old is one of the leading lights in Division Three, but The Pirates will finally lose their fight to hold on to him this week.
Wigan are believed to be leading the chase for the £500,000 marksman and are looking to tie up a quick deal, but over bidders could come in before Thursday's deadline.
Ellington has hit 21 goals this season, with a highlight being a hat-trick in the FA Cup which helped knockout Premiership Derby.
Rovers are once again losing another top young striker, having previously being the starting point for the likes of Marcus Stewart, Bobby Zamora and Jamie Cureton.
