Blackburn face losing out to Monaco in Formica signing battle

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean faces disappointment in his pursuit of Newell's Old Boys attacker Mauro Formica.

Kean was eagerly anticipating the arrival of Formica, likening the 22 year-old to Argentine legend Gabriel Batistuta.

However, Monaco look set to disappoint Blackburn after they offered £2.75m to Newell's Old Boys for Formica.

The 22-year-old is heading to the principality for talks.
