Blackburn boss Kean flying to India armed with new shopping list

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is set to deliver his summer shopping list to the club's owners in Pune, India.

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is set to deliver his summer shopping list to the club's owners in Pune, India.

Kean will fly home from India today with his summer wish list approved and ready to go – after spending the last five days plotting Blackburn Rovers’ Premier League top 10 assault, says the Lancashire Telegraph.

He has been told he will have a bumper budget to bolster his squad, with the whole £16.5million received from the sale of Phil Jones to add to his cash pot, and has spent the last week finalising his list of targets.

Aston Villa defender James Collins and Swedish free agent Sebastian Larsson are understood to be on his list of domestic targets with the club’s owners still bidding to also land a ‘landmark signing’ this summer.

Roma’s prolific Montenegrin striker Mirko Vucinic is a top big name target, although the likes of Juventus’ Amauri and even Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor have also been linked as potential new strikers.

Brazilian Miranda is another defender being looked at although his agent still expects the Sao Paolo man to honour a pre contract agreement with Atletico Madrid – despite Rovers attempting to hijack the deal with the offer of doubling his wages.
