Camel Meriem is expected to sign with Blackburn Rovers today.
The News of the World says Blackburn have snapped up former Monaco midfielder Meriem on a contract until the end of the season.
Allardyce has made his move for the free agent in a bid to boost the creativity of a side who have failed to score in half of their 20 league games this season.
Rovers will be taking a punt on the 30-year-old who has been without a club since leaving Monaco in the summer.
After passing a medical on Monday, the midfielder is all ready to put pen to paper on the short-term deal.
