Clubs join race for Rovers ace
Blackburn ace Steven N'Zonzi, who is set to leave Rovers after relegation, is wanted a by a myriad of top-flight clubs.
N'Zonzi has been linked with eight Premier League clubs to date and seems certain to leave the Ewood Park outfit after they slipped down to the Championship earlier this month. The midfielder, who joined Rovers from Amiens in 2009, has impressed during Steve Kean's struggles this season and has attracted plenty of attention from across the Premier League. Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is a big admirer but if he does decide to pursue his interest this summer he is likely to face plenty of competition. Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Sunderland, Everton and Fulham are also keen and some clubs have reportedly already held talks with N'Zonzi's representatives over a deal, with Rovers likely to sell for around £3-4million. Meanwhile, Redknapp will continue to monitor Rovers winger Junior Hoillett, who is wanted by plenty of clubs, as he draws up his shortlist of summer targets.
