Mark Hughes is mulling over a move for Ali Boussaboun after taking the Feyenoord forward on trial.
The Morocco international first captured Hughes' attention during Blackburn's 0-0 draw with Feyenoord in the Uefa Cup in November.
He has linked up with the Rovers squad for training this week and Hughes has again been impressed.
However, the Blackburn boss is still weighing up whether or not to offer Boussaboun a deal.
"He impressed us when we faced Feyenoord a couple of months back so we have been over to watch him and he has been on trial down here too," Hughes explained.
"He has very quick feet and had a positive effect on the game, especially in the final third.
"It is early days yet though and we are someway off a final decision yet."
