Blackburn Rovers are prepared to sell Roque Santa Cruz – for the right price.
The Sun says Santa Cruz, who was strongly linked to Manchester City in January, could also be on his way out – but only if the price matches Blackburn’s £15million valuation.
Arsenal are also keen.

With Emmanuel Adebayor looking odds on for an Emirates exit there is all the more need for Arsene to crank up the chase for this impressive Blackburn ace but know that they will be chased all the way by moneybags Man City.
Roque Santa Cruz had a great first season in the Premier League but his second was hampered by injury and constant speculation about his future at Ewood Park. The Paraguayan has shown enough in his spell on Lancashire to suggest that he could fit in well at one of the Premier League big boys.
The ball is very much in the former Bayern Munich man’s court as Sam Allardyce would probably not stand in the player’s way and would welcome the financial windfall from his sale.
