Skysports.com understands that, as well as Roque Santa Cruz and Damien Duff, Blackburn also want to bring David Bentley back to the club.
Rovers’ new owners Venky’s have a plethora of targets and their bid for Ronaldinho has made headlines, but they are also looking at bring back a number of former players to spearhead their new era at Ewood Park.
Their interest in Santa Cruz, who only left for Manchester City last year, and Duff is already known, and now they have also targeted Bentley. (Sky Sports)
After seemingly failing to land Ronaldinho and David Beckham, Blackburn Rovers have drawn up an altogether more realistic wish list comprising three former players who may well all be up for a move back to their former stamping grounds.
Both Roque Santa Cruz and David Bentley are bench bound and have suffered a great deal due to the inflated prices it took to bring them to Man City and Tottenham respectively, clearly neither player has any control over the amount that was paid for their services but in many ways these fees have hung around their necks for some time.
Both are quality players and both could do a good job and both will be available for far less than they were sold for. Damien Duff is a different kettle of fish as he has returned to near enough his best form during his 18 months at Fulham and therefore Mark Hughes may well not be keen on selling the Irish international.
The trio would cost in the region of £18m which is a fee less than the reported wage offer made to Ronaldinho!
