Partizan Belgrade have confirmed that they are ready to sell Radosav Petrovic, as Serbian sources claim Blackburn Rovers are interested.
Petrovic has already seen a move to Dutch club Vitesse Arnhem fall through as he was poised to pen a five-year deal.
Now Partizan have revealed that Petrovic is close to a move and reports in Serbia suggest the club in question is Blackburn.
The 22-year-old Serbia international midfielder has been with Partizan for three-years and was one of the top-scorers in the Super Liga last season as he helped his club to the title.
Now Partizan have confirmed that Petrovic does look like he will be moving.
"We have a serious bid for Petrovic and the chances are that there will be a transfer," said the club's sporting director Mladen Krstajic.
Vitesse have, for their part, confirmed that they are still interested in signing Petrovic, along with fellow countryman Slobodan Rajkovic from Chelsea.
