Swedish midfield star Rasmus Elm is a target for Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce.

The Mirror says Allardyce is making inquiries about the tall Scandinavian prospect who only joined Dutch champions AZ Alkmaar in the summer for £4 million.

Rovers have been tipped off that Elm wants to come to England - after fearing he made the wrong move to snub Everton for Alkmaar in the last window.

The midfielder had the chance to join David Moyes's team after being a stand-out for his country in their European under-21 championship finals.
