The 24-year-old is very highly rated and has been one of the French club's most consistent performers this season, which included two good displays against Newcastle in the Intertoto Cup.
A delegation from Blackburn watched the Argentine play in Saturday's 2-0 defeat against Lyon and he impressed enough to be invited to Lancashire to train with the club and will arrive this weekend.
Rovers manager Graeme Souness has been looking for a new left back all summer and had made Traore his number one target after failing to prise Martin Grainger away from Birmingham.
But it now seems that Zavagno is the most feasible option for Rovers and he will to stay at Ewood Park for seven days, after he was given permission by Troyes to travel to England.
Sochaux are also believed to be interested in the South American, but Blackburn have first option on the former Strasbourg full back.
