Blackburn have been linked with a move for Villarreal midfielder Alessio Tacchinardi.
Reports in Spain have linked Blackburn manager Mark Hughes with a move for Villarreal's unsettled midfielder Alessio Tacchinardi.
After long-term injuries to influential duo Robbie Savage and Steven Reid, Hughes is considering adding to his midfield ranks before the transfer window closes next Wednesday.
And the Welshman has reportedly cast his eye over Tacchinardi, 31, who is on loan to The Yellow Submarine from Juventus until the end of the season.
The Italian has failed to hold down a regular first team place for Manuel Pellegrini this season and his manager has already confirmed that Tacchinardi will return to Juve in the summer.
Reports have also linked Rovers with a move for Aston Villa's Lee Hendrie.
