With Stig Inge Bjornebye having a torrid time through injury Rovers boss Graeme Souness is keen to bring in a left-sided defender and Spaniard Garcia has emerged as the number one target after the club's failure to land Philippe Leonard from Monaco.
"We are pursuing a number of left backs and Juan Fran Garcia is one of those names," confirmed chief executive John Williams.
Blackburn are 10th in The Premiership with the season two thirds gone and Souness feels he needs to add some depth to his squad if they are to challenge for a European spot.
Spanish international Juanfran, 27, was a member of his country's World Cup squad in the Far East and has also been strongly linked with Birmingham, Everton and Portuguese giants Benfica.
